PJF - tame that old beast

Postby anthonyW » January 13th, 2019, 5:42 pm

Old collected fig that the previous owner had sat on for 30 or 35 yrs ? memory, cost me a pretty penny to, wife would die if she you knew how much...yes I lied to her, see you in hell :palm: haha
Anyway 2010 i would start the build, 8 full years later i m now happy for it to go in a local show,....through the process I would keep both trunks/arms only lowering the smaller one (closest to you) over time with turnbuckles..... cheers

Needs a Aussie pot....

See you at the gates of hell ... oh, and I hope the title of your post is about your tree!

Take some solace mate ... there is no way all those dresses, shoes and handbags were always on sale; how much money has been spent ‘saving’ money. [SEE-NO-EVIL MONKEY][SMILING FACE WITH SMILING EYES]

On other matters ... excellent progression! [THUMBS UP SIGN]

Oh, and you’ll be turned away from the gates because of all the trees you saved from certain death - providing advice to amateurs like me.

Hehe too funny Mark, only you would find something like that in there haha, you are quick lol

Yes there are things that just appear somehow, but they have had them quite awhile apparently when complimenting ;)

Oh yes the tree, very happy with it and glad you like it, keep posting Mark your trees are coming on in leaps and bounds...great to see.

cheers Anthony
