Podocarpus thinning, new bud removal?
« on: June 23, 2011, 09:18 PM »
Anybody on here have much experience with Podocarpus?  One of my teachers, Ted Matson says to treat them very similiar to JBP, so I have done that.  I just removed all of the new bud growth back to last years needles/leaves, and now i hope for the best.  Has anyone done this with success? Any other tips? My tree is fairly large and mature. Will try to post pics of its current state later, as i did not take any before pictures. This may be the first podocarpus post on here as i searched podocarpus with 0 results.
