The beech group i got from the auction needs to go in a pot and as I can't afford one I'm going to get a slate . This would be a good project to bring down as i also want to move a few of the trees.
Would somebody have a grinder there to shape the slate?
Definitely could be arranged. Let us jnow when you are coming and I'll bring my grinder.
I put the beech group together a year ago, I wouldn't rush repotting it. I had planned to allow the trunks roots to fuse a little. Unless you plan to re-position the trunks, then forget all I said. Wink
Thats nice to know you put the group together. I love it.
I do want to move a couple of the outside ones . I have reduced the height of the group as i thought some of the branches were too thick at the top and wanted to get the whole thing a bit more compact. I hope i haven't ruined your work.
I'm going to get a slate this weekend hopefully. I have a wedding to go to next week and then hopefully i will have some space to come down, if my boy allows me Rolling Eyes Not trees again Dad is the call i hear often. Embarassed
Hi Smithy,
Sounds like you have a clear idea where you want to take the group. Very Happy
If you are planning to visit on the 21st Feb. Dragon will not be home, We are showing at Swindon winter show that day. Sorry. pale

He decided to wire and move the upper trunk into a deep 'S'.
He heavy wired and cranked it into shape.

After further discussion, Gerwyn was convinced to remove the 'S' and develop a much smaller, larger tree.

Not a bad move. Have you ever considered grafting foliage down lower?

Good suggestion Rob.
Dragon has not in the past created many grafted trees.
Last season, one or two members have attempted grafting with some good results.
Regretfully it is not a technique we are quick to consider.
Thank you for the suggestion. I will be looking for an opportunity to add grafting to our 'toolbox' of techniques. ThumbsUp
