collected material 2014

Post  Guest on Thu Jan 09, 2014 11:44 am

I went collecting material yesterday...expecting to watch my husband work hard, and sigh for him....
But this hawthorn growing by the Beach, trying to crawl closer to the forrest near by, was dug up in 7 minutes, (after the branches had been cut off) with a nice big rootball, heavy to carry to the car 5 m. away

The tree have dense featherroots all around the trunk, exept from a little part under the branch in the left side, here was a tiny taproot, easy to remove...I am sure many new roots will shoot here too during the next growing season....feel a kind of Lucky  Smile 

Went to an old garden and dug up a Cotoneaster horizontalis....in the rootball was to my surprice also a wild rose



Look forward to this rose

The cotoneaster is a kind of mess...Wonder what is dead, and what is alive...time will tell, what I maybe can make of it, it is not realy a favourite  plant of mine now




Kind regards Yvonne

Hi appalachianOwl

The hawthorn and the rose is native to my country...the cotoneaster is a imported gardenplant, that grow well in Denmark, but I never saw one in the wild...

Kind regards Yvonne

Yes, the hawthorn is really nice, also from the sides and the back...
I did not know what I had untill we dug it up, as it was a large ca. 70 high dense bush, with many dead branches, I just knew there was a change for having something in there...It was not a tree that was doing well, its soil was just dirty sand...It would have died within a few years, just like the other hawthorns next to it....I would say it was collectet in time.

I have collected and repottet during this time of year, for many years now...my open damp basement is pefect for the trees during the winter. The basement is basicly wind and frostfree, and roots grow a little all winter, also on the newly pottet dormant trees, in early spring will new roottips have formed and be ready for next season.

Kind regards Yvonne

I only kept the hawthorn , did not like the other plants after all...

The hawthorn had grown freely from the few selected buds during spring, and it was time to cut back to shape, as it was clear the growth in the right side of the photo of the tree, was not as strong as the left...the tree is now rootbound, one of the good things about small pots, you can sooner begin to work on the tree, as roots faster fil the pot, and leave the tree is standing firm in the pot

It is the first tree I ever found with useful original branches placed low....so this will be my first time with material like this 
I have carved back the branches to shape...later when the new growth is stronger will I do more carving...but enough for now...I  hope and expect the carvings will stop the strong growth a little, and leave the right side a advantage to come stronger. 
Later when the tree is back, showing strong even growth (hopefully), will I probably carefully take it to a larger container for the rest of the growingseason.

Kind regards Yvonne

Half the summer has gone, and the hawthorn have grown nicely. Today have I removed a little bark in the places I want to reduce the deadwood...I am not carwing more this year, but will do more during winter, when leafes has gone.  




The backside....the part-deadwoodclump in the center will be outgrown with time, and some of the deadwood from the old big branches will be removed during winter, and even out the trunk...also have I kept a sacrificebranch that will add to the even out during the next couple of years.

Hope you like the tree so far.....

Kind regards Yvonne

Repotted the tree during Winter, and is pleased to see the tree is healthy

The tree to the top is 36 cm. Later will I take out the top to the blue line...but not now...also is there more carving deadwood to do.
Last year was the right side fairly weak, but it is budding nice and strong,  giving hope for a better ballanched tree in the future

Kind regards Yvonne

I have turned the tree, and this is how it will stay from now on....the new backside is filling up nicely with branches, so.....the tree is standing 37 cm tall, and does as my only tree have a quit horizontal growth....my other hawthorns is growing upwards. I makes me think I have found a old kind of hawthorn

There will be a little carving to do during winter.

Kind regards Yvonne
