Phenomenal Back Budiing on Pinus Sylvestris

Post  wabashene on Sat May 26, 2012 10:14 am

Purchased this little Scots Pine at JoB 2 years back for £20 and it IS little - about 20cm.

It was weak and I lost a couple of branches early on so double potted it end of last year and have fertilised heavily.

Growth was retricted to a few extended shoots with large needles at the end of whippy branches circled in yellow.

About September last year I cut 3/4 of the way back into the extented shoots which is technique I have used before on a large Sylvestris I traded off.(see below)



This year it has responded with masses of new shoots almost everywhere - inc way back on old wood - so hopefully in a few more years I may have something to work with.

I believe this is an nestablished technique for P. Sylvestris and may prove of interest to others.
