I pruned this a while ago to make it easier to over winter . No movement for a while to come yet .

Far out Sno. :shock: This is going to be an absolute cracker - whether in the comp or not.

I absolutely love what you are doing with this one. Such awesome foundations. I can't wait to see this develop over the years to come.

Thanks Kevin .

Not quite Bingo yet Orpy , but it's coming along .

This tree has settled nicely into its new pot and is pushing new growth . The trick will be to not over prune , going on the previous years it will shut down soon and won't start growing again until after the comp has finished in November . I'm pruning back to an active bud hoping that this will keep the tree growing longer .

Thanks BB .

So this tree grew a little bit over autumn . It's healthy going into winter so I'll leave pruning untill the final . I'd like it a bit shorter ,it's about 160 mm at the moment .

This one is looking healthy . Going on past years it won't grow anymore till after this comp has finished . I think I have enough growth to play with it to make it look more refined . We'll see .

Pretty happy with this tree ,considering it looked like a sharp pencil at the end of the last comp . I included an above shot to show the difference . Stands about 14 cm .

I do love this one mate, very nice job. :beer:

You've convinced me Sno. I think I'll try my hand at a Lepto or a Kunzea for the next shohin comp. :yes:
The small foliage is a big advantage and makes sense.
