I have two large pine trees. I have a straight line of roses passing by one of the trees and a line of ligustrums by the other. Both plants planted close to the pine trees are much smaller. I do water the ones close to the trees a lot more,but does not seem to help,also they get plenty sunlight. Someone told me that pine trees take something out of the soil and that whats hurting the plants. What would I need to fertilize with to help the problem?

RE: pine trees

Any large established plant, especially a tree, will be faster and more efficient at taking up nutrients than a smaller shrub/perennial. If they are getting enough sun, then you will want to fertilize them well, so they have a chance to thrive.

Might also want to consider moving the other plants farther away from the trees....
