Good job mate. Mine are about 6 months behind yours but will take some cues from your work.

So the stump that I repotted on an angle didn't really appreciate the late Autumn repot, but is starting to wake up again so should come back fine. I've readjusted some branches and will go for a windswept look for that one. I'll wait until it looks just a little happier before posting photos.

The second stump still had me stumped ( :palm: ) until someone on Facebook suggested removing one of the trunks - that gave me the idea of splitting it into two twin-trunk trees. This stump already had some existing rot in the centre, and the cuts were surprisingly minor, so I'm not too concerned about how this will affect it.

I might reduce the height of things a bit after leaving these to rest for now.

Let me know if you ever want to sell a bogan. Don’t have one in my collection yet.

looking forward to seeing how you work these twin big boys in the future G27. Especially when carving time happens.
I cannot grow these, as they seem to suicide on me on every attempt. It's nothing i'm doing wrong...it's them! :whistle:

I'll probably be getting rid of at least one of these at some point; splitting plants isn't helping in my quest to reduce stock :palm:

Carving these should be interesting! I think I'll need to invest in one of those Terrier bits or something - the bits I have now are probably a little on the small side for these. And luckily I have plenty of olives to practice my carving skills on.
