Busy one year

It is a busy year behind my big hornbeam. After I shorthened it a year earlier, in 2009 and then dug out last spring, I finally begun working on it. It all started with primary branch selection, continued with the carving of the stump and ended with wiring.

2011 --->

The work on the deadwood is far from being finished. I will continue with the work on it next year. Then it will be dry and it will be much easier for detailed work.

At the end I applied some cut paste on the wounds.

The making of a shohin larch

Today I transplanted a shohin larch that I dug out last summer - I just wanted to test if it will be succesfull - adn I cut the major branches. Well, it's alive.
Next year comes the styling of the crown and maybe the repotting into the final pot.
