Oxfordshire, United Kingdom
I have a small pine tree in a terracotta pot. The leaves are turning brown, almost half of them have now turned. I re-potted it about 6 months ago but the base of tree seems to have lifted slightly and the pot now seems too small. Our house is rented so we cannot plant the tree in the garden and would like to keep it in a pot. Will it thrive in another, bigger, pot or will a pot always be a problem for it? I'm thinking that it needs deeper roots than the pot can give it. I'm also not sure about the soil. It's currently in a mix of organic potting compost and clay. I really don't want to lose the tree and would be grateful for any advice you could give me.
