Yamadori Hawthorn

Post  geoff on Thu May 13, 2010 5:01 pm

My Hawthorn is flowering about the same time as Alex's. It was collected about 1995 in Wales and I obtained it 2 years later.
It had a couple of flowers on it last year, but this year it's covered.



Plenty of flowers this year.

Super Job Geoff
Did you use any technique to aid/assist flowering? I have a tree which I started in 1987 and despite my best efforts it has not flowered yet despite feeding with high potash every year and regular 'nob end' removal.
Keep up the good work

Hi Fuzzy, I haven't show this tree before so I don't think you would have seen it.

Barrie,
I followed a technique I read in an old Bonsai Today mag and also given on the Kaizen website under Graham Potter's articles, which is basically let the first new growth go till about summer and then only cut back half to three quarter's. Don't prune any more till late winter to maintain profile. It gives detailed advice on the website. Hopes this helps and you get covered in flowers in the next year or two.

Hi Geoff.
You’re right. The tree I’m thinking of is similar in design and is on The artistic bonsai circle website.
Thanks for the reply. Smile

Make your browser window wider. If it's too narrow, the right sidebar with poster's avatar and location will cover the right sides of large photos, and there's no scroll bar under the photo. Photos can be up to 800 pixels wide, and the margins and right sidebar take about 260 pixels, so your browser window has to be at least 1060 pixels wide to show everything.

Hi Geoff

That is a beautiful Hawthorn. My own is prolifically flowering this year, not in your league though. That is a real cracking tree.

At our club meeting last Friday Roy, one of our members, brought along this Hawthorn in Flower. It's still requiring some refinement but he wanted show us the flowers. It is actually flowering well ahead of any of my Hawthorns. They're a fickle tree.
