Mugo Pine Update - First Growing Season - August 2022
Last last Fall (October), I bought and planted a small 1# Mugo Pine in our backyard garden - in the north side beds between the Harry Lauder Walking Stick tree and our Weeping Nootka Cypress tree. I posted the details of the Mugo Pine and how it was doing over Winter here in early January.
Fast forward seven months and what does it look like during its first true growing season? See below for the new growth and size that it has put on this Summer:
I haven't paid particular attention to it, but since it is located in this bed, it has been sprinkler watered along with everything else. There are some brown needles along the interior, but I'm seeing a lot of bottle-brush-like growth on all the tips. Good growing - so far. And...the rabbits don't have any interest in it. Again...so far.
