New Mame.;..

Post  Peter E. on Fri Feb 12, 2010 9:52 pm

Hi, i haven't been here for a while.
Thought i would try the new system, so here goes.
I have recently started re-potting my trees and had two mame on the bench.
After looking at them for a while i thought they may fit together as their bark was very similar.
Having cleared the roots of soil they were offered together and i settled on a semi-cascade style.
They were potted in a Gordon Duffet pot to enhance them.
They do need a detailed re-wire but that can be done later when they have settled into their new home.



B****Y H**L, that was hard work. Sad

Hello P.E. I like the combination of the two trees and have a bit of a fetish for Gordons pots. Especially the fine light blue glaze with Hawthorn. The only problem I see is developing a top on the thicker trunk,in such a small pot.

Nice tree with lots of potential. To further enhance the image, cut the cascading branch as it comes off the bend. The one that is justing forward is your future leader. Do this now! To wait, that branch will overpower the parent down the road.

I think that could become rather a nice hawthorn in the future.
A Gordon pot is always worthy of a nice tree!
We are so lucky to have him here! ThumbsUp

He may be right!

If you keep them in that small pot you may be able to carve the larger trunk more to create taper. Lose that back branch and the thick part of the trunk it is attached to.

So, a total re-style is the sugested route with this little one.


I am going to have to think about all those changes. Thanks anyway.

I don.t think I'd take anything off. Hawthorns take a long time to bulk up. I would leave the cascade branch. Any growth here, keep short, to build structure. I would let the top tree, do what it wants this year, to thicken the top and then cut back as the leaves turn in Autumn. This will promote back budding.
