Autumn cleanup

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



Black Pine 11

This picture was taken in the 22nd February 2014 you can see the seedings on top of the shed.


On the 12th April 2014 I potted these seedlings into 20cm by 20cm pond baskets 50:50 (Akadama:Cat Litter) and added some root stimulant:

I’m going for a informal upright here and Im hoping for a few buds to pop a bit lower down the trunk to use them as sacrifice branches.


Here are all the seedlings potted up
