I have a couple of small conifers outside the front door - admittedly the pots are too small for them i think, but one has managed to survive perfectly well - the other less so. I think actually the wind over the winter removed some of the soil from around the roots, and gradually it turned brown.
If i look real closely at the main stem of the bush there is a bit of green, which suggests there might be some life left. With that in mind, whats the best way to bring it back to life like its green brother?
I had already intended on transferring it to a larger pot - do i also need to prune it right back to the main stem - i realise that will look horrific but im led to believe that a brown conifer will never go green again so the brown needs to be removed?
