Privet 2 Years from Collection

Post  bonsaikc on Mon Jul 11, 2011 8:40 pm

Dug this from my hedge in March 2009. Cut it way back (it's now about 14-16 inches tall). I just defoliated and rewired yesterday.

Nice work, Chris! What are the dimensions of the tree?

I'm sorry I didn't put the Official Japanese Measuring Unit in the photo, but I don't smoke!LOL

This was the tree in late March 2009:



At this time it was over 30 inches tall, but I don't remember exactly. I haven't measured the trunk specifically but the tree is approximately 14 to 16 inches tall. I'll get some measurements and post them.

The amazing thing is that this is what the tree looked like just this March, only three months ago!

I'll be reducing the top some more when I get more shoots to work with. I'm so please with how easily this ramifies. It's a shame I don't have any more trunks to speak of in that hedge. I'm thinking about cutting all of it back hard and trying to develop some.

Hi Bonsaikc, a great start indeed!

I love Privet, they tolerate any amount of abuse and at any time of year, and once they're settled they grow quicker than you can clip 'em!
I've got several that I collected 3 years ago and they're all throwing new shoots and buds out in all directions. I'll post some pics soon.

Thanks, Harleyrider! This was a very nice surprise for me since I didn't know what it was when I collected it!
