I gave this Hawthorn collected up the North coast in around 2003 a rewiring last week. It’s been knocking around my garden for years but it’s finally starting to resemble a tree. In about another 15 years it might actually look the part 🙂
This was it in Spring 2010 when I air layer a trunk off.
September 2011, starting from scratch branch wise.
I wired the tree out for the first time in Winter 20114/15 and this was the tree in May 2015 after cutting back the first flush of growth.
And this is the tree now in March 2016 after a second wiring. Just need about 10 times the ramification to make a convincing tree image.
