It was warm and sunny yesterday when Gerry arrived in my garden for our regular midweek “get together”. He brought along a few trees that required some work and we quickly got started on a variety of seasonal tasks.
First up was the Juniper that we worked on last time. The deadwood that was created a few weeks ago has now dried sufficiently to allow a little more work with a power tool. We also applied a coat of lime sulphur and removed a few more unnecessary branches.
This is how it looks at the moment, the initial wiring will be carried out in September when the growth slows down
Here are some other small trees that needed a little seasonal maintenance.
This Chinese Elm was trimmed back and had its first wiring
This Malus needed a trim
Some branch selection and wiring was carried out on this little Cork Barked Elm.
