Hi Dorian,

Thanks for the reply boet  :)

Looks like the white pine took the repotting in its stride.  I think it likes the open mix. Loblolly is lagging behind a bit but still looks a healthy green, even the juvenile growth on it still looks  fine.

White pines are s bit more temperamental  than black pines  when it comes to temperature and watering
Also in SA they can't be sited in full sun in summer...they kind of expire. Black pine can't get enough sun

Best regards
Herman

Definitely agree on the Black pines not getting enough sun.  My 2 are loving being in the sun and really doing well.
