This photo was taken today. This Hornbeam was leaf pruned at tne end of May. Only the external leaves were pruned to let light inside and the bottom branch was left untouched, so it would extend and thicken. The size of the leaves are a lot smaller and the ramification has improved dramatically.

Really nice tree will! I love it's fall colors. How do you keep leaves to be in such good shape until fall? Is it mainly shaded during the growing season? I have a collected Carpinus Caroliniana and it's a challenge to keep leaves pretty much intact until fall. Also color in this species does not seem to be as dramatic as with the Korean variety but that's just my observation.

I don't mind the pot...perhaps moving the tree slightly to the right?

hi Will, very good work. I like this hornbeam, but I changed the pot and I chose a lower and simpler pot.

Hey Will, Your tree shows nice progress in ramification! For me, I would like to see the top left side of the apex reduced by an inch or so...its seems to have gotten out of proportion in the last year.

hello John. This Hornbeam is grown primarily for its Winter image. The canopy is a bit large but it gets a pruning as the leaves go brown. This cuts away the strong apical buds and pushes strength back into the tree. A tree grown for its Winter image will always look disproportionate in its Summer clothes, as the leaf broadens the silhouette.

Nice one Will !! I love these fall colors !!
I changed your, may I say beautiful pot a little and by removing one branch on the left side I created some open space. The top is slightly tinned on the left side to creat just a little more balance. I hope you dont mind, I had nothing to do and no sleep yet! Very Happy Very Happy
Did you get my PM?
Cheers,
Hans van Meer.

Smithy. This tree started life as a large cutting. 3 years in the ground and 4 in a pot. When I originally posted this tree (first Autumn Colour) everyone said what a good tree pot combination it was. Fashion Eh!!! That pot is soooooo 2009!!!!

Hi hi!!!
Will, I would like to quote this old saying from the famous blind Japanese potter " Ci Not Ting" :
Those people that now condemn your pot, will when you have past away, fight over it a lot!!!

Hans van Meer.

Hi Will,


I like your hornbeam, though I do have some thoughts about it you might help me with. To me, the composition is mostly heading to the left, aided by the lean of the lower trunk, and then the long sweeping curve of the upper trunk. The trunk is also divided into two almost equal parts, straight lower section, curved top section. Most of the branches also head off strongly to the left. Is this left moving appearance an artifact of your photo? Or a part of your design? What would it look like if you rotated it a little anticlockwise?

Will did you cut the pot back? Wink
I love these hornbeams, Have not one for myself though, but fall colour is stunning on the korean ones.

For the pot, Its not ugly at all just not fitting this tree, If I saw one for sale, I probably would by it.

I purposely cut out the pot to concentrate on the tree, rather than the pot and what do I get but more comments on the "chuffin" pot!!! Sad Very Happy
