    The new growth on this branch of the Wollemi Pine is growing from two spots. From its end & from the side of the branch.

    The strange spiky growth at the top of the Wollemi Pine's trunk. Have never seen it do this before.

    Maybe it is going to have some beautiful pine cones.  That would be nice.

    This isn't a true pine Granny, they're just called that like the others in their family. They do have a large seed ball which grows at the end of the branches but our Wollemi pine is still just a baby & would be too small for that. That tuft in the above pic has turned out to be more new branches sprouting. It's going beserk!!  :lol2:  :bravo:

    Thanks, Dawn, I have never seen so much new growth on the Wollemi Pine before. It is amazing. The growth is so profuse & so latge. Astounding really. Thought it was dying, with what appears to be die-back, but after three heavy applications of your favourite anti-fungicide, cinnamon, no new outbreaks have occurred & the branches apparently suffering from dieback haven't worsened. Of course, then there is all this luxuriant new growth.  :bravo:  

    Fingers remain crossed though.  :luck:

    I am glad the cinnamon seemed to help  :cool3: It is a great feeling when one of the plants that has done nothing for ages suddenly puts out such a great spurt of growth !  :cool4:

    Yes, Dawn, it certainly is. I was very worried about it so used the cinnamon liberally, hosed it in then repeated several weeks later. Have done it three times now. Also gave it some liquid fertiliser & this is the result. The weather may also have contributed because many of the different types of trees etc have been having a bumper time with growth & flowering.  :bravo:

    Have some pics I took of the top of the Wollemi pine prior to coming up here to Brisbane Dawn & will post them when I return . It has grown immensely. It's almost like the Day of the Triffids.  :smile:
