JBP seedling repot

There are four small Japanese black pine seedlings that I got last summer from my friend Jason. They didn’t push out any candles. I think the soil particle size was too small and they stayed too wet. I took the time to repot them today in a mix of half chunky perlite half akadama. 


Think I put enough fertilizer on them? It’s Alaska brand pelletized fish emulsion. I also sprinkled a few spoonfuls of Holly Tone on them too to help add some mycorrhizal fungi to the soil. 

Next up a set of three Japanese red pines.
