What does the temperature drop to at night at your house? Here in Harrisburg, PA, it still gets to -4c @ night.
Day: 10c high

I want to get out my trees, and collect some more. But I think I should wait...

I have read instructions from various sources saying not to feed Japanese white pines until the new needles have stopped lengthening, so that they stay short. I see in your previous posts that you feed ALL your trees throughout the active vegetation period. Just to confirm, does that include the Japanese white pines?

Will,
yes.
One exception: I do not feed Japanese white pines whit any organic feed like all other trees. They tend to loose branches and get yellow foliage often if I did.
