Root over Rock Cotoneaster

I repotted this one a few weeks back and it’s come into leaf very quickly. Flower Buds can even be seen 🙂

Ceanothus one week on

One week after collection and buds are already appearing on my Ceanothus. The higher temperatures in the poly tunnel must have done the job.

This bud is very adventurous being well down the tree. Bodes well for back budding.

Futtering in the Garden

I spent a few hours today tidying up and playing with trees.

I managed to get the last bit of screening up and did a little power washing. You may notice the flowering Fuji Cherry isn’t on the bench. I lifted it in to try and keep those flowers out of the heavy rain. No point in losing them quicker than necessary!

I had a look at the buds on this Larch group. As nice as the little green shaving brushes are, it was very congested and bud and branch thinning is needed. I lifted it into the garage and gave it a going over.

Congestion of buds

This is the remains of the unwanted buds.

I took enough photos to produce a 360 of the group after thinning. I’ll add it to the club 360 page later.
