Urban hawthorn

Post  Jan Olav on Fri Jan 23, 2009 8:32 pm

Thank you Kev for getting the forum up and running again, I missed it a lot.
Here is an update on one of my collected hawthorns. Some of you might remember from last year? This year the "pot" was full of fine feeder roots so I slip potted and cleaned of the last of the old soil. It grew 60-70 cm tall shoots last summer. I will keep the tree in a heated bed at around 10 degrees celsius for a month, then it will be ready for the growing season. I will let the deadwood dry out for a while before a treatment of lime sulphur and coffee.
I am looking forward to developing the branch structure on this one. More to come from this one...

Looking good so far, Jan. I am glad to see that you eliminated all those heavy branches. Unfortunately, that resulted in some unsightly scars, but I would rather deal with them than with those thick branches. The tree has good taper and nebari. I am sure you will enjoy working with it.

I am enjoying this tree already. I kind of like scars in deciduous trees, reminds me of some of the old trees seen over here in nature. I live in a wet climate, winters are rainy and moist. This makes rotting wood a part of nature.

Hi Alex, This is one of them. They all survived. I guess the heated bed did the trick. The roots grew out of the pot. This is a picture from when I repotted the tree this year, before carving.
