So I bought this from a guy who had it in his possession for over 25 years for £569 off ebay. In that time he unfortunately neglected the branches and didn’t bother repotting it for years! the top needs to be cut back and tree needs repotting badly.
Cut back will be done in Autumn after leaf drop and repotting in spring once buds start to swell.

On the 2nd August 2014 I decided to air layer the branches that where going to be cut off in the autumn anyway so fingers crossed they will take.
Late in the season so may leave them on till spring.
