Dear Monkey Puzzle Tree Gurus, I live in St. John's, NL. I returned from Vancouver last summer with two monkey puzzle trees to remind me of home. One is healthy, about 2' tall, and has outgrown its pot. Its roots are protruding and it seems cramped. The other is brownish and ailing, perhaps due to the electric heat. While I know that these trees should be grown outdoors, I am unsure as to if they will tolerate the Newfoundland weather. The temperature rarely drops below -5 or -10 Celsius in the winter but it is very windy all year round. i) The healthy tree needs to be repotted. What type of soil should I use? I have heard that they like 'loamy' soil but don't know how to proceed. ii) Should I forgo repotting and just plant the healthy one outside? If so, when is the best time to do so? June? iii) Do you have any tips as to how I might rejuvenate the brown one? I have no idea why it does poorly when the other is well. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions or advice you might have. Thanks in advance! Aedon Young.
