Hi all!

I got given two fairly tall Lily Pilly trees that are a bit worse for wear.
They had grown up quite tall but had not been pruned and were left quite bare and sticky.

I have now planted them in large containers (as they were very pot bound), pruned back the height and tip pruned the sides.
Also gave it a feed of seaweed solution.

Based on the picture, is there anything else you would suggest to help this plant get back to shape?

I planted it in native potting mix mixed with a bag of organic compost.

Thank you :-)

Just keep on feeding and don't let it/them get dry. Should be real pretty in a bit.

Thanks @CPPgardener
I have just given it a big heap of organic chicken manure fertilizer.
Hopefully that will help
