Sunburned and Re potted
I recently re potted this tree and now have it in the gritty mix. So far it seems to be doing O.K.
It's been almost 2 weeks, and I only lost 2 leaves.
I have it under my patio in as much shade as possible, the temps here in Tucson, have been 105+ with a little drop this week.
I know right now is not the ideal time to re pot, especially bare root like I had to do, but the poor thing was in just a tall narrow pot, not sure what to call it.
So far I'm really happy with it and watching for new growth.
The poor thing was in horrible soil, it came from Wal mart this spring.
I do think it suffered some sunburn though, it happened suddenly about a bit ago, right before I did the re pot. it was HOT! And 2 more had the same thing happen in the same week.
I have 3 more to do now.
Please excuse the mess on the patio, I didn't think to clean up before taking the pics. lol.
Here's the soil it was in.. It looks like peat and sand.
