It’s a waiting game for me now. Having repotted most of my trees it’s too early to do any serious work on any of them.
This Kiyohime was the first tree to be re-potted this season and it appears to be doing really well. It’s history is rather sad but it has filled out well so far.
This is a shot of a branch which has developed from a point lower than any other branch on the tree and is pushing its way up and out toward the back and top of the tree. It is the lowest branch on the left on the first image. It is very healthy looking. I am all too aware of the difficulties in replacing a lost apex on a Kiyohime but this branch is making a valiant effort to reach the top of the foliage canopy. If it does it will be a real asset to the tree. Here’s hoping.
