conifer rusty 1

140829 - I had to put off repotting it in 2013 because of the move - it was well overdue. The foliage had got rustier and ruster.

Shouldn't think this a survivor Fran. Conifers don't like cut back or disturbance usually.

I hadn't repotted it for a couple of years, just changed the topsoil. I should have taken cuttings, if at all, when I first saw that it was browning. Ah well, live and learn. I did think of just chucking it, but it's worth giving it a chance.
