Ash with promise or next winters logs?

Post  toggsie on Mon Mar 29, 2010 12:31 pm

I have had this tree for about 5years and it has been in the ground during that time. Every year I have cut it back after the new branches reached about 24in. I now need some inspiration as to what to do next.
If anyone has the time to do a virtual or just observations I would be grateful.
The pot is 23in Dia and it is 7in deep. (hernia time lifting it!) It is planted in 1/8in Cat litter with a base layer of granite chippings. I have fed it regularly with MiracleGrow 27/7/17 which seems to work well.
Thanks in antisipation
Barrie

Lots of promise -- but next time you repot I'd get rid of that see-through base.

Hi Barrie Here’s a very rough idea for you. Cut all long shoots back to the small side shoots and you could end up with something along these lines. Just an idea hope it helps. Have you been on Walter Palls site? He has some lovely examples of ash bonsai.

Thanx Jim - will bear your comment in mind.

Thanx 'Fuzzy' for taking the time to do a virtual. I think you may have given me an inspiration pill.
I have put the chainsaw away for a while anyway.
I will visit WP's website as you suggest, thanx for the tip.
regards.
Barrie
