The Spring re-potting of my deciduous trees got off to a good start last week but quickly came to a halt as the weather changed for the worse. My trees seem very confused.
Some, like this acer and my 2 flowering cherries have valiantly pushed onward with great vigour.
Others, like my pomegranate and zelkovas seem to have gone into retreat and are stubbornly refusing to push out new growth until the weather warms up.
The worst affected is this kiyohime maple, which was covered in small buds some of which have died back with the recent cold nights. I had hoped to have re-potted this by now but I’ll now have to wait until its looking a bit stronger.
In contrast, my evergreens are getting greener every day with the increasing daylight.
I just wish it was a little warmer.
