I de-wired and pruned my big Blaauws Juniper at the weekend in preparation for another fine wiring to open up the foliage pads. I hope to complete this work over the festive period but things sometimes take longer than expected at this time of year with the short daylight hours and the preparations for Christmas and the New Year.
This is how it looks this morning with no wire on.
This tree has come a long way in recent years and is almost at the stage where I might consider it finished, for the moment.
Here is a reminder of its’ progress
