I had a little time today, so had a walk round the garden to check on the trees, my Kokonoe white pine seems to have acclimatized very well to it's new surroundings. It is budding up all over which is a good sign that it is happy where it is.
I think this could be the result of the styling which opened up the foliage to allow light to get in better.
I can hardly wait for spring to come so I can do a repot into a nice pot.
Although not the best photo you can still see the new buds.
I am very happy with the progress of this tree.
