Dwarf Mugo Pine
Hey all. I purchased this Dwarf Mugo Pine yesterday and immediately repotted it. I pruned off some bar branches, and some branches that would've caused bulges in the branches. I was also told to repot into turface (which I'm running low on), but after the pruning, should I really do that? I feel I have stressed this tree enough. I think the soil it is in now is fine. It just needs to grow more. Turface dries out too quickly anyway, and in the heat of the summer here in the NoVA area, it is pretty bad. Here is the tree, before and after removal of some branche:
What do you all think?
