Shohin in my garden

Post  Guest on Thu May 26, 2011 10:47 am

Hi everybody

This is my tamarix, almost ready for the danish exhibition next weekend. It is still in its "upside dawn" harnes.



This is a oak, this year have I not tried to keep the leafs small, as it is not going to an exhibition this year



This ulmus is a layering from a danish tree, growing in the wild. Do anyone know the latin name?.



An answer will be very much appreciated. All trees are my work.

Kind regards Yvonne

Hi Yvonne,

I think its Ulmus glabra its the elm thats growing in Denmark, sold as a hedge and forrest tree.
Looking forward to see you this weekend.

Hello yvonne,

You have some nice shohin.
I really like them.
especially the ulmus and the oak.

I like the tamarix to, but in my opinion it fit's better when the branches are wired in bows and go down.
And maybe a unglazed pot.

Best regards,
Yannick

That elm looks very nice = just needs a little more canopy on it. How long sine you layered it as the nebari looks old? Will defoliation reduce the leaf size?

Hello Yvonne. Very nice trees. The Elm looks like what we call English Elm, or Ulmus minor.

Hi Yvonne,
I love your shohin trees. How do you reduce the oak leaves for a show year? Do you pinch and monitor the watering?
Thanks,
Todd

Hi Peter

See you soon. I think we will have some great days...

Hi Yannic

The tree is only 17 cm. tall, and it is close to impossible to vire such a small tree.....But you are right, bows are pretty. Maybe you can see in the tops, I try to make bows, most of the branches is not just going straith dawn, but have a curve close to the trunk.
Unglaced pot?...maybe.....I like this one.

Hi Rob

This tree is about 17 years old...it used to have a diffrent top, but it died. The last 8 years, have I been worken on the new top, and it is slowly getting there. In a year or two will it be nice ( I think)
I have never tried do defoliate the tree, but I think it would work.

Hi Will

Thanks for your answer, but now I am confused again. Back to square one Laughing

Kind regards Yvonne

Hi Todd

If I want to bring the oak to an exhibition next year, will I not repot the tree during the winter.

As soon as the buds has opened, will I water only very, very little. This small tree will stand compleetly dry for about 4-5 days before watering again....keep the pot in compleete shade, and the crown in the moderate sun

When the top/end buds swell in spring, and is close to open, will I cut the tiny branches back to 2 or 3 buds. This is what I do every year, with this tree ( 17 cm. tall). This way the branches wont die back.

Hope it answer your question, or just ask again.

Kind regards Yvonne

Actully Yannick

It is possible to make the curve with this tecnik....I tried it in a only small scale this year, as I needed the tree to stay small....This spring, when the tamarix started to grow, did I leave it the "right" way, untill the new growth had become 1 cm. long before turning the tree.
I guess it is possible to leave the growth, to become 4 or 5 cm. before turning, this will create a bigger soft curve, if the growth is still soft Smile

Kind regards Yvonne

Hi Yvonne

Nice trees!

Thanks for sharing the tamarix, this is a species I will have in the future (need to travel 900km & collect sometime) and it's a facinating technique growing it upside down! thumbs up

Cheers

Thanks for nice word to Mick and jerry

Allso to Gerhard....a layering will soon grow fat, I have a cutting 3 0r 4 years old, it will go in a shohinpot next year. I will show you a photo tomorrow.
Remember you dont need to spend time to create the crown, on a small tree like this, is it made new every year. good luck.

Thanks bob....English elm?, It is also a kind of corkelm, I brake off the wings.

Kind regards Yvonne
