Two I've been working on this year

Post  john5555leonard on Sun Sep 25, 2011 4:41 am

[img][/img][img][/img][img][/img]these are 2 gassiow < phyllanthus taxodiifolius beille > i,v been working on this year, the first one has been lifted by 90 degrees and the soil was mounded up behind , but gradually over this last year the roots have been removed and now looks ok at the back, i,v done a little carving but now needs some work in the center where the 2 trunks rap around each other. the tree has been programmed,and now i,m waiting to get all the branches to the correct thickness, then i can start to refine the pads. the second tree again was only collected last year and had another trunk in front an exact copy of main trunk but 1/4 size and i had thought about a mother/daughter design but it was in the wrong place, so i removed it and its a bit weak , if it survives i may put them together again but in a different position , however i quite like the main tree as it is . again the tree has been programmed and now i,m waiting to thicken the branches. regards john

No, not that bad, but I don't know what to say.

Maybe, too much going on from too many growth points too far apart?

Maybe more compact foliage?

Hi Billy, all I'm doing now is thickening the branches, and I will let them grow another 2 meters or so before they are cut back. Then I'll start to develop the foliage, then the foliage will look more united, probably another 2 yrs work. I'll post a pic when its finished. Regards john
