Silver Birch - this tree was in a large pot and had been neglected. I want to reduce it in height to under 21cm, as it will make a great shohin tree with its thick but low trunk. I have been hard pruning it to reduce height and induce back budding, and the tree has responded well.
The root ball was longer than me!
Potted up. She has some new buds & leaves where I've pruned her, so I'll slowly keep reducing & inducing, and hopefully she'll make for a beautiful tree!
Dwarf holly - again in a large patio pot; feeling a little neglected. Again I've been pruning her back and she's been back budding nicely!
Was fun getting that out!
I'll keep slowly pruning back branches to get them to back bud, and I'll put some pics up when further developed.
