August 2018

Fortunately eight months later it has made an excellent restoration.

April 2019 – too straight

It was nonetheless wanting very straight and ugly although, so yesterday I made a decision to make one other try at styling it.

I wrestle with thick wire, particularly on little bushes,so I made a decision I wasn’t going to threat that once more. I do not wish to kill what’s left of the tree!

After an unsuccessful try and put some motion into the tree utilizing skinny wire doubled up, I made a decision to attempt one thing totally different. As a substitute of utilizing a man wire, nevertheless, I pulled the apex to the fitting and barely ahead utilizing a humble cable tie – a trick I picked up finally Saturday’s membership assembly.

April 2019 – not so straight any extra

A lot better!

Sadly even the minimal wiring I tried triggered a bit harm to the bark.

Hopefully it isn’t dangerous sufficient to do any long run harm.

I will most likely wait one other 12 months earlier than I prune it. If I am fortunate a few of the new buds on the trunk with develop and provides me a few further branches to work with.
