Have I got something to post about or do I just want to post something you might ask. Probably the latter.
This little stump was a piece of garden centre stock that was just starting to open up when I completely bare rooted it and cut it back drastically last week. I know that’s not the best combination of procedures but the tree is beginning to respond already with some new shoots starting to emerge. We’ll see how it does. It was only £5.99 and if it fails I can stand the loss.
The branch on the right will probably need reduced later in the season if the tree responds well. The tree stands about 6 inches tall including the pot. I won the pot at a NIBS raffle.
The whole thing is just a bit of a novelty.
