Just like to share my PJ fig, quite happy with its progress and responding well to anything I throw at it, thanks also to Kez for his work pre 2016. Now to build on the ramification. Any thoughts welcome Cheers Peter

Nice work Peter, just some thoughts if your interested, I had play with your tree and put foliage on it to see it better, i used your branching it works for me but if possible a kink to right I think might help to get off the straight bit, either pushing the top half with heavy wire if possible, or use the branch i drew on to change direction, dosen t need a lot, my orange line little bit exaggerated there but you know what I mean I hope,,,,, anyway mate only thoughts, look forward to it leafed up either way.... cheers

Thanks Anthony for the sketch and your suggestions. I agree with what you are saying about the top and did try to bend last year as evident by the green tape, will try again but a different approach next time. The picture probably doesn’t do it justice but glad we are on the same page Cheers Peter
