Why are Mugo Pines turning brown?
I planted 3 of the Mugo Pines in June on the east side of my house. They are sheltered but get lots of sun in the morning but are shaded in the afternoon. They have turned brown. In reviewing the internet for their care, they say they never need watering. I do water them in the summer but don't know if I am watering them enough or not. Please advise.
