Hi John, Will give the Beech a hard prune soon making sure to leave at least one bud, so might be left with some long straggly twigs. The Blackthorn can be pruned but will leave it for the time being. Will chop one of the two trunks away, just wait to see where I get sprouts.
Thanks Sam

For some reason, I really enjoy what the beach is doing right now. It has a lot of personality underneath all of those wild twigs.

Paul, I thought you were supposed to put these in boxes that are just large enough to fit the root mass, and not larger. Am I mistaken?

No not mistaken look at the beach and blackthorn in deep clay pots turnning roots inward if planted in box you can add support wire and spread the roots to lower the truck. my other point was soil mix looks like 100% cat litter . just trying to help
