Collecting larch

Yesterday was a good day for collecting..


Ash – Fraxinus excelsior

This ash was collected about 4 years ago and I’ve been reducing the roots and branches since. I took the chance this winter to repot to a smaller pot and begin to look at building ramification over the coming years.

Thick trunk boxwood

This is a boxwood collected about 3 years ago by Andrew in the woods. It has thrived in past year and it was time to make some decisions. I repotted to the smallest pot I dared and removed some shoots, wired some others. I reduced the dead wood also and tried a bit of carving. I’ll let it recover for the next year.
