Hi there.
I need some advice. I bought a 4.5ft christmas tree in dec 13. It's pot grown. I really want to re pot it, but quite a lot of needles have fallen off and it's not as green as it was. Will they ever grow back, is it worth repotting?
Thank you so much

Hi welcome to GoY, I would repot it a s a p, the pot it's in is far too small for a plant that size, fortunately, it looks as though it's only the lower branches that seem to be affected, the needles won't grow back on these, but that isn't a problem, because they lose the lower branches normally, as the tree grows, so I would cut off the worst affected to tidy the tree, Derek.

Always worth a try to repot it and see how it goes.
