hawthorn question

Post  bobby little on Sun Mar 06, 2011 12:26 pm

got one planted in my garden for future training. Thing is, I'm happy with the basic shape and don't anticipate it being a big bonsai. My question is, is it a bad idea to cut it to the approximate size now with the hope that it will back bud and throw out new growth in the areas I want in the future rather than waste energy growing in areas I'm going to dispose of later?

I suppose, as long as the trunk and branches are at the right thickness you want.

Hi Bobby Little

It is not a good idea....the tree will shoot a lot in the top, and forgett the lover branches. You will end up with a tree, sporting a reversed taper.

Kind regards Yvonne
