The June meeting was a workshop and despite the cold and wet weather, many hardy members bought a wide range of trees to work on. Experienced members were kept busy providing guidance on tree development.
Members also displayed a range of trees including several under development and at least one facing a major re-design. See photos below.
|Juniper from last Demonstration|
The Hawthorn was collected about 20 years ago. It flowers and fruits regularly. The branches on the small tree swept down on collection so the large tree was styled accordingly. Needs to be tilted slightly to the viewers left on next repot.
|Tsuga canadensis – Canadian Hemlock|
The Hemlock is a very old tree that was grown as a directionless flat multi trunk cascade. Four years ago it was reduced to one cascade trunk. Most of the dead wood was caused by sun scorch so during the summer months it is now kept under shade cloth.
