Autumn cleanup

I cut some needles that shaded the buds that we want to keep and weeded



Autumn Cleanup

I cut some of last years needles that were shading buds


Autumn update

So this tree looks a little ill, could have been the early candle cutting in 2013 followed by the candle cutting then restyle in 2014. Or it could be the soil that hasn’t been changed yet since I got the tree and was holding too much moisture??

Either way it won’t be needle plucked or bud selected and we’ll just see what it looks like in spring. In the mean time will try and keep it as dry as possible over winter.
