Transplanting Lebanese Cedar -- Falling needles



I have a Lebanese cedar in my garden that was planted 20 years ago but it never grew wall, in fact it hardly grew at all.

We are moving house and I have potted the tree in expectation for the move. During the transplanting operation the roots suffered some damage, it was very difficult to dig it out, otherwise the tree seems fine. I watered abundantly the tree on the first day, a bit more on the second and I left it stay.

I gave a bit of Dragonfly Roots boost to the soil and I also read a very light solution of sugar with water also helps which I also did.

This is about 10 days since I potted the tree and it now rapidly losing it's needles. I am tempted of replacing the soil all together, but I worry I can make things worse.

Any suggestions?

Many thanks
