Progression - Taxus #3 Collected from a Hedge

Post  ericrobinson on Fri Aug 30, 2013 4:06 am

In 2006 I collected this Taxus from a hedge (along with 5 others, 2 shown HERE: http://ibonsaiclub.forumotion.com/t9070-progression-taxus-collected-from-a-hedge?highlight=hedge AND HERE: http://ibonsaiclub.forumotion.com/t14151-progression-taxus-4-collected-from-a-hedge?highlight=hedge). I planted the tree in a free-draining mix and let it recover and grow for 3 years. I re-potted it into a smaller cut-down nursery pot in spring of 2009 and removed the clay soil with a mild water jet. (2 following pics in 2010)





In 2010 I cut off the left branches that would later become deadwood.



First styling of branches and initial carving of deadwood in 2012.



It had good growth in 2013 so i decided to perform a July re-pot. Picture taken 8-29-13



Detail of the deadwood, trunk and branches.

An interesting rendition of the trunks on the left into deadwood. Have you considered jinning the next and tallest trunk as well?

Maybe I'll try a virtual with your suggestion at some point. ( Unless some one beats me to it Very Happy )

A virtual of possible adjustments. Shorten the tree and jin a branch that is too heavy.
