11 Years in the life of a Larch

 

While working on this chuhin larch today, I thought I would take a look at some old photographs of it, to remind myself how it has developed in the time it has been in my care.

This first picture was taken in 2005 about one year after I acquired it.

Until 2011, when the next picture was taken, it was mainly a case of clip and grow to keep it in shape

Late autumn 2012, the tree is in its’ current pot and some of the lower branches have been removed to give the tree a lighter appearance

A year later in 2013, it is beginning to fill out

And today in July 2016, It’s just about as good as it will ever be and it’s one of my favourite trees
