Yesterday was a good day for collecting..
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.
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.
Some pics from our recent workshop at Mark’s place. Thanks to him for organising, you did a great job 😉
Thanks to Phil, lots of different work went on, air layers, reporting, styling.. and a few laughs..
This year I will undertake a Japanese themed show garden at a local garden festival. We did a launch today and did a radio interview.
First this year workshop – http://wp.me/p76RuC-bY
