Abies nordmanniana needles have gone brown

Gloucestershire, United Kingdom Gb

I have Abies nordmanniana in pot. I water it once a week. The needles got brown. What is wrong? I don't water it if it was raining.

On plant Abies nordmanniana



Growing conifers in pots for any length of time is generally not a good idea for many reasons. By your remarks about watering the plant , its my guess the problem is either under or over watering. If you want to keep the plant assuming it is still alive, plant it in the ground. A photo would have been a bit more helpfull.
