I did this layer back in April and removed it a few weeks back. All looks good and I look forward to developing this little one next year.
And this little trident was successful at the second attempt.
And both potted up with a little moss top dressing to ensure surface roots remain moist.
And a word to the wise, when you saw through the trunk, ensure your other hand is well clear!! This is how I ended up. Flap of skin hanging off and exposing the knuckle bone 😦 10 days later and it got infected and I ended up at Minor Injuries Unit for treatment. Will I ever learn?
Sounds like a nasty wee injury! I’m looking forward to trying some layers next year
