I think all will agree that some trees in an individual collection give more satisfaction and pleasure than others. This little tree is the one for me just now. I ended last year with very low expectations of this tree having treated it as little more than a weed up until then. But now that it is in full leaf I like it very much.
Because the tree has been given a new front at the last re-potting the lower branches need to lengthen to give a better image.
I am just hoping that I will be able to preserve the deadwood over the years. Probably will need to keep up my supply of wood hardener
