Looking great Yvonne. Please keep posting updates. Your threads on IBC are some of my favourite progressions. Watching talented, more experienced people develop their trees is one of the best ways that help me learn. Not just before and after pics, but shots and details over a significant amount of time.

A few updates...


This one is growing nicely, like all the others...I make sure the direction is being followed, and will in the future grow the lowest branches to the left stronger, a smaller pot, and the tree is ready for exhibion in a year, i think


I was not very pleased with this tree, all 3 trunks had the same hight, and it was not possible to anything about it, as it was...cut back the apex' of the two trunks to the right, and will now grow two new smaller, and at the same time grow the lowest branch to the right stronger, this will add to the direction.


This on was also one of the first trees on this tread, I am not planning to keep it small. The tree has ben in the fairly large pot all year, the crown has grown a lot but the trunksice is too small for my taste...will have to do something about it....it is the same problem with the next tree ( new on this page)

The roots are growing slow, and does not add much to the trunk...I will leave them as they are one more season in the pot, and during midsummer next year, carefully move them to a bigger, without touching the roots.


This is one from page 1...it is healthy, but not much has happened here, hope next year will be better.

The next 4 is small trees of the same motherplant...they are not much to look at now, but hopefully will they be shohintrees one day








Kind regards Yvonne

Thanks Guys  Smile  

The spring is cold in Denmark this year, and it will take a while before I have updates on the elms...I want all the buds to have started growing, and be pruned and thinned out again, before there is anything realy new....But one of the trees have had its trunk shortened, as it was too straight for the design, and the taper was poor, also had the apex formed a clump as I tried to prune/force it to grow buds further dawn the trunk...this spring did it happen, and I could make the cut....


front
The new growth is not in the desired side, but if it bud from the sleeping bud ( red line)start to grow, will it be better


back, with sleeping buds


this was the tree

Kind regards Yvonne

Your trees are developing a nice aged look. Very nice, good work. I like the back of this last tree equally to the front. Well done

When you start from cutting (and very thin as you already told me)

Do you wire from the start ? do you have a plan for each cutting or you let them grow and follow what the tree tells you ?

thanks

Hi Akhater

This one was vired from the beginning, but most of them are not....
I have a plan from the beginning, but do often change it, as the tree tell me what to do, as it grow.

Kind regards Yvonne

Two of the trees was in an exhibition for the first time last weekend

this tree was in a shelf

And this was together with a winning kifu-entry

The roots had developed nicely on the young tree, and added to a better final direction of the tree...I have turned the tree and the backside is now the front, and will be kept this way in the future.

Kind regards Yvonne

Thank you Akhater Smile


Have just pruned this one a little, not to make it pretty, but to sharpen the style

I am aiming to have a profile like this....have found two sacrificebranches, that will be allowed to grow and form a new apex during the next year, or two, as long as it takes Smile

Kind regrads Yvonne
