.One more suggestion before I put my abrasive tongue to bed. Lift the tree and put some more soil in. The tree will grow a lot more strongly in a larger volume of soil. Feed well and regularly.

Laughing Laughing Laughing

strangely, at your suggestion I plonked the rest of it into the ground and the buds on that are opening at a much faster rate, even though it's got no roots. How's that work then?

also got a couple of new bits but I'm scared to post them affraid

The top you put in the ground has a lot of sap in it, that's why its growing. Have the buds on the base not moved at all? It has returned to cold weather again so that might slow it down.
Come on Bobby, show us your new ones...... please??

only very slightly. seems that some of the ones there previously have died off and there's some newer ones starting to squeeze themselves out.

I'll post the other bits later or tomorrow.

Those buds may have been knocked or rubbed. They are very sensitive to damage but the tree is very robust.....

I like the Larch Bobby, its got potential to be a deicate, feminine literati. The Hornbeams are good practice material. The reason you broke the branch is because you have used under sized wire and have tried to over bend the branch to get the wire to stay in place. Hornbeam branches are incredibly stiff and need very thick wire.

Hi! all.

Hornbeam has incredibly large cells as in long.
This makes wood stiff.as rubber and that isnt stiff? (i am learning)
It rots like h*ll in timber or construction wood its used as nice to look at! in smaller detail:twisted: !
Bend if u like in full sap stream, then it's rubber but it bends rainbows.
Cut an lead,...hornbeam...

@ mr little...bought a raft and it is as it was....see look wonder!
easy to sprout though!

Nice sharing,..like it larche....eeeh the Cool

re:hornbeam. You a wise dude. Suggestions for the larch would be welcome, although I had similar ideas,the execution eludes me...

Hi Bobby, My first instinct was to bury it into a raft style planting, but now that you've cleaned it up and stood it in the pot I think I would lean it over more and go with a slanting style. That big toe root should go under ground or be removed as you'll want the dominant root going back in the opposite direction of the slant.

Hi Bobby,
Your larch has the potential to become a really nice literati imo. Do you have a club nearby, Failing that I’d suggest you take a trip to see Mr Baddeley as I’m sure with his creative skills you’d end up with something quite special. You up for it Will? Smile

Yes I'd be up for it, the only problem being that the Larch is about to come into leaf. Next coupe of days or you'll have to wait till the end of the year.

thanks for the offer, but suffolk is a bit of a jaunt from coventry, and I can't afford the diesel. Mad
