Another blackthorn installation.

Late spring installation.
Rustic Blackthorn, ancient woods, wild garlic and tanzaku flying birds through the clouds.
The birds fly away naturally for they tree the roost in.

I wish blackthorn was readily available in the U.S. I love that species.

I'm with Michael on that. Michael- I am trying prunus Angustifolia starting this year hopefully as a native flowering tree like ume or blackthorn.

Jeremy- great tree!

Hi,
I think if you can source the older, mature barked prunus Angustifolia you would likely be "hitting the ball out of the park"
In Wales blackthorn are used as a hedging material, but the ones we look for are usually collected off hillsides, grazed by animals and hit by adverse weather. Good fissured bark, and lots of movement throughtout the trunk and branch are hard to find and are usually very hard to collect. I have recently found a some just a half mile from my house in an abandoned limestone quarry and have ground layered a couple as an experiment. Time will tell.
Good luck with you journey.
