Lovely to revisit and see the continuous development. Excellent autumnal colours too.

Very nice work you're doing there kohaku! The tree is progressing nicely. Just one observation. Why not pull the grafted seedling through until it's roots are close to the hole? That way you won't have the untapered section which will always remain. (if that makes sense)

Here's one I did a couple of years ago:



I year later, other side with seedlings cut off


new roots


It's not too late to adjust it if you care to. Either way, lovely tree!

Yep its better.......the drilling holes i made were  to small to put the grafts deeper in the trunk.

Today drilled bigger holes......and made the correction ;-)

Congratualtions

What lovely Autumn colour.

Has the tree been shortened since the 2014 photos?
It looks to me that the Height above the first branch has been reduced in the last year.

Hi Ken,

Yes it is.....

In 2014 i made a small  graft in a lower section of the trunkleader part that's pointing to the left. This grafted new top made it possible to chop this maple a little more.

hi kohaku.

nice tree.
just a question regarding grafting roots.
wouldn't have been better to do this at the end of winter just before the tree awaken?

Maybe it is better...maybe not? Altough some articles mention early spring as the best period.

I did many graftings on japanese maples, some in spring, some in fall and others  in full summer after defoliation the part that has to go true the  trunk.

All of this grafts did well... no matter what season they were made. (only had some problems with approach grafts wich were not always as succesfull as the threadgraftings)

I think it's important to use a  good sealing past over the wounds to prevent the bleeding  in early spring.

Cutting a maples branch in the fall gives less or no bleeding in spring.   When you cut the branch in spring....it will bleed  so i guess the closing of the damaged cambium layers also takes place in the colder months.

I never give frost protection to my j. maples and never had any frost damage..so i think it's ok to make the graftings  before winter.

Lets hope these graftings are also joining the rest of the tree.....the following years  ;-)

Nice work. How cold does it get in the winter where you are? I did a quick search and found average winter lows around 0 deg C in Brussels which would indicate to me that the lowest temperatures are probably in the -10 deg C range. I protect my Japanese maples because we see -15 deg C or a bit lower most winters and -25 deg C happens occasionally.

Hi Marty

Correct....occasionally It can become -10 or even -15°C in Belgium.....(these days are rare)

The coldest periods are mostly in the -5°C range.

Average minimum temp in winter is 1°C , average max temp is arround 5 °C
