Today was the first time this year that Gerry and I were able to get together to work on our trees.
The garden is still very cold and white from the snowfall we had at the weekend, so all work today was carried out in my kitchen.
Gerry brought this larch, which was styled for the first time in March of last year
This is how it looks after a second wiring today. I’m particularly pleased with the way this tree is shaping up considering it was started less than a year ago from the most unpromising material.
This is a reminder of how it looked in March last year
He also brought along this new acquisition to show it off. It’s a shohin Amelanchier , which is a species I know nothing about. It has a fantastic trunk and it will be interesting to observe how it develops in the coming years.
