Shohin Yew

This yew that I grew from a cutting from a prostrate variety is progressing pretty well. It has been heavily wired recently to place the main branches and has also been given a bit of a trim.

The main branch to the left is too straight and the shari doesn’t really disguise that fact very well. I may well be able to put some movement into it later on but that would be quite difficult to do as it is so thick, so I hope to be able to hide it a little as the foliage develops further.

The tree was really only given its first styling two seasons ago. The jins were wired and placed about a month ago by wrapping hot wet clothes around them. I was pleasantly surprised at the ease with which I could bend them without splitting them.

Still a long way to go
