shohin chinese elm

Postby Matthew » September 4th, 2011, 6:14 pm

im posting this elm just to see how i go with progession over the course of the current shohin comp. It was inelagible to enter as i had wired that leader about 6 weeks ago. i thought it would be fun to see how i go with it. future height im hoping around 6 inches and base is about 2 inches atm. no idea whats under the soil.

just an up date. I am happy with the current progression and i have a very nice shohin pot it will go into at winter time. primery branches are mostly there just need to work the new top and develop ramification
