This little tree has been thinned out in the last week following a good growing season. Old wire has been removed to stop it digging in and new wire applied and branches etc placed. Although it is far from being anything significant I think the tree is at last beginning to show some potential for a reasonable image.
The next step is a new pot but that is can be difficult than it sounds here in N Ireland. When it is eventually re-potted I hope to expose more of the nebari to make it more convincing
