I have just finished watering the trees ,for about the third time today. In this heat they are drinking loads of the stuff. Just as well I am retired as I have plenty of time to look after their needs.
These two junipers are getting close to being trimmed.
When Robert Porch was here yesterday I got him to have a look at John's Malus [ Crab Apple ] to see if it was ready to be removed.He said there were enough roots to sustain the tree, so today John came over and we severed the tree from below the air layer and potted it up.
This is the tree not long after the air layer was done.
The tree today before severing from the trunk.
The air layer.
Plenty of new roots to sustain good growth.
John will now keep it in shade for a few weeks so as not to stress it to much during the heat wave we are having.
