I was pushing my luck today wiring this Hawthorn so late on. Easy to knock off emerging buds. However if left for another season the branches would have stiffened further making it harder to get the right shape into them. Some deadwood also removed to improve trunk line.
A long way to go to create enough ramification on this one to make a convincing mature image, but that’s the fun part 🙂
Nice one, Ian! I have tried to air layering an hawthorn this year. I hope it will works as yours.
