As we head into Winter, it's probably time I put in an update on these pine seedlings.
Things are looking good for most, my pine plantation has been reduced in size somewhat as quite a few seedlings have found new homes ... mostly with people from this forum so good luck with them to all who picked up a few! :yes:
I still have more than enough for me to play with, and although all the JBP, JRP and Scots I put aside have been sold, I still have about 20 or so Austrian Pines looking for new digs if anybody is interested ... ;)
Here's a link to the appropriate thread :
viewtopic.php?f=102&t=26811

Anyhow ... back to the pines.
I haven't done much with them over the last few months, aside from water/fert and try and maximise the amount of sun they get. Some of the JBP I have wired to try and get a bit of movement down low that way, while others I have left as they were.

The Scots pine are a bit less developed than the JBP but are still nice and healthy nonetheless. They have plenty of buds down the trunks just waiting for Spring, I'll be keen to see how they take off later in the year - I feel like they are ready to explode.

I'll have to take a few progression pics of the Red Pines and the Austrians soon to complete this post, but they too are looking good and I think will get moving when Spring hits.

I plan to do a bit of root work on some/most of these pines just before the warm weather comes around and get them into slightly larger pots to give them a bit of room to expand next growing season. I'm pretty happy with how these all turned out, I feel like I really achieved something! :tu:

Yep - your seedlings have found a happy home here R3. No experimenting for me on these precious units - just water, fert and what sun I can find. Same goes for a range that found their way to my step-dad’s too.

Excellent! Catch you on the weekend MJL. :yes:

And, just for completion of my above post - here's some progression shots of my other pine seedlings as they stand today.

I still have around 60-70 pine seedlings left in total ... roughly half are black pine and then even numbers spread between Red, Scots and Austrian.
