Monkey Puzzle Tree

David Peavoy asked 11 years ago
Planted Monkey puzzle tree last November outside in Garden. It is two foot high and the spikes have been steadily turning yellower in colour. Do you have any suggestions of what is wrong and what I should feed it if anything. It has not been overwatered and is planted in quite an open space

Monkey puzzle is hardy but a young plant might have been affected by a very cold winter.

Monkey puzzle needs deep, fertile, moisture-retentive but well-drained soil to do well.

No feeding except a mulch of well-rotter leaf mould and be sure to keep grass and weeds away for one metre diameter.
