I don't think there's much to do now... Lol? Maybe as it grows it'll shape up a bit.

You know what they say, though. Practice makes perfect.

Okay here's my idea. Will take some major wiring plus some very extensive growth but I think if I can just leave it alone until next spring I'll start the new wiring. Really the wiring I did now is just to get it in condition to be super wired next season. I want it every twig in place so I will need the tree to be in great condition otherwise it'll just die off! Hope I'm doing that right... The third one is just a dream lol it'd be fun though! :P

thats a cool mock-up it looks good too! one thing though, you might want to make the apex go up instead of slanting to the left. leaning to the left is fin, but not slanting to the left... idk if that makes sense at all... it looks off balance

anyone remember that ficus i did a workshop with? well its dead. it never recovered from the workshop ( i dont know why. i suspect i was too aggressive with it. i need to do things slower and more spaced out. workshops usually do it all in a few hours. oh well...

I defoliated my trident maple this weekend. It looks really sad right now, but in a few weeks it should look amazing! I'm also trying out some glosso as ground cover. Pics to come soon.

Let's see if the glosso holds 1st. I got the idea from Tom. If you look back on page 2, most of the ground cover in his pots is glosso. I didn't believe it till I saw it with my own eyes. Beautiful green glosso. It looked so cool I had to try it.
