|January 2019 – earlier than pruning|
Plenty of the tree needed to be discarded on the time as a result of repotting was a matter of urgency after I purchased it, however there was sufficient left to permit me to do an air layer earlier than I began growing this, the dad or mum tree.
I am ashamed to confess that for the reason that air layer was eliminated, nevertheless, I’ve largely ignored each timber. That created an issue with this one as a result of the highest department on the left was thicker than the decrease branches and apex. I needed to change one thing.
Two choices introduced themselves :
- change the planting angle and switch the thick department into the brand new chief
- take away that department
I opted for the latter.

After the department was eliminated I used to be left with an unpleasant bulge the place it had been.
|Janurary 2019 – after carving|
Not an ideal job by any means, however for a primary try, I am fairly pleased. Once I’ve received a bit extra carving expertise, I can nonetheless come again and enhance on it.
For now I would like the 2 facet branches to thicken a bit extra earlier than I shorten them, and the brand new chief and again department want a number of fattening up.
