Despite six people turning up to my natter night there were only two trees brought along.
This first one a small Chinese Elm brought by Margery just needed a little clip out.
This tree is overwintered in a cold green house and it is still producing foliage, despite the cold weather.
After I gave it a clean out of unwanted branches and also shortened a few others, it is looking a lot better.
Then Ken M arrived with this White Pine, it is not looking very well at the moment with a lot of very brown needles. However the buds do look ok, so it is fingers crossed for Spring to arrive to see if they do start to open.
The tree had all the wire removed and the compost loosened up a little to let air into it.
Today Sue S and myself made the journey up to Ayr for their Winter image show, despite the weather the trip was not bad, just two and a half hours.After a warm welcome we helped to arrange the tables and cover them with cloths. Then the easy bit, put out our displays and wait for everyone else to arrive.
Tables ready come on in.
Our displays, mine on the left and Sue's on the right.
More of the trees in the show.
Fiona you should do your trees before they go on display.
For trimming the grass on Shohin trees.
We had a very good day out, as did all those making the effort to get there.
