Hi Will, I think pmjos has hit the nail on the head these were my exact thoughts when you posed the question.

Hello pmjos and Ian. It has crossed my mind that it could have originally been 2 trees. I'm sure there would be a difference between the 2 though. Leaf shape, colour, Spring growth and Autumn colour are exactly the same.

I have just been left £200 in a will so i'm on the look out to buy a tree . I'm going to put a little more to it so it will be the most I've spent on a tree. Is that enough.

I purchased one of Gordon Duffetts pots at the weekend. This pale blue will work well with the red berries.

Thanks Kenbu. I think Gordon developed this glaze specifically for Hawthorns or red berries. Guess the next step will be a table. You going to post some of yours?

Hi Will,

I bought a very similar pot from Gordon at JoB earlier this year.

I put my J White Pine in it and it looks pretty good as well even though the pot colour and tree colour are pretty close.

I like it very much, but would you consider grafting a root on the right side?

Hello Rich. There is a root on the right side but it is quite small at the moment. When I repot, I will wire the root as its a funny shape.

Will,

I have always liked this tree. In my opinion, one of the best Crataegus trees out there, without nasty trunk chops and artificial dead wood. The other one I like is Tony Tickle's raft. They both have a natural inherent quality that is difficult to describe.

Thanks for posting this update.

Kind regards,

Jose Luis

Thanks Jose Luis. There are a few chops on this tree but well hidden and disguised. These Welsh Hawthorns are superb and often exhibit great bark, movement and taper on a relatively small tree. Those Sheep do a great job.

For me this is a good combination tree/pot Will. I like this Gordon Duffet pot very much, fits the tree good in my opinion... ThumbsUp

But what about the root sticking in the air on the right? I think Rich made a good point about root grafting. You said something about a root growing over there...

Hello Hans. I'm in the process of buying some whips to thread graft. Should be picking them up in a day or two.

Beautiful. Very natural feeling of this tree. I like it very very much. That old bark and the movement makes it very lively and peaceful at the same time.

Best regards

Thankyou Ed. Maybe Noelanders one day.
Hello Morton. Be interested to know which way you think this trees direction is. With the line from nebari to apex, it should be placed right to left? Because of the other trunk(S) I feel the movement should be left to right?....Right?

Hi Will.
I can just repeat, ancient, natural, and peacefull.
I am not Morten but on your question on the trees direction,
for me the tree has a movement to the right, and a clear counter movement to the left.
If feel displaying this tree in connection with other elements, i would go on my own feeling
and see what works, what is lighting up magical or not.
I have some difficulty with the pot in connection with the tree though.
The colour and dimension is fine, but compared with the old pot this new one makes the tree smaller
and that is not one wants with this majestic tree i imagine.
I feel this effect is evoked by the rim and the feet of the pot and a little by the glaze.
Maybe again a pot with a rim and a more subtle lining of the feet?
Do not understand me wrong this is about fine getting better.
Most of us do not have the money to buy loads of good pots stands and so on.
regards, Sunip Wink

Hi Will.
That photo was taken today? I am surprised to see no new growth emerging on the tree yet.

Hello Sunip and thanks for your comments. I was happy with the last pot but in my opinion, this one is a better match.
Hello Lee. I have other Hawthorns in the garden and a lot are in leaf. The Welsh ones are slightly slower and its been cold for the time of year. Buds on this one are on the move though.

Welsh trees are a bit slower. Just thought I'd clarify that before a host of angry red messages come my way.
