Around here autumn is a good time for me to get some trees worked. This year has been harder than normal because obviously Rammon went on his way and we have also been insanely busy too. I generally spend the autumn covered in dust knocking holes in big deciduous trees but this year I sold them all so I turned my attention to some sabina junipers that just weren’t selling.
I adore sabina juniper but with my sausage fingers wiring them does drive me up the wall. However it is possible with care to create a very tight refined image. Following a subsequent years growth first work junipers can look amazing. Autumn re-potting where necessary will also encourage strong summer growth as opposed to spring repotting which makes them sulk badly.
Beautiful species,bought a few from kaizen and sometimes hard to see a final image,but look amazing when done..they even love the weather up here in Lancashire,which surprised me even more,,
Autumn potting sounds definitely the way to go,,,do you provide protection afterwards graham?
Omg, you sure your name isn’t Radagast? Looks very bloody wizardly to me. Stellar work. The Great Unwashed never see potential – you gotta bludgeon them in the face with a ‘finished’ product *sigh* – bet you’d like to on occasion; sadly hard on the trees though.
I came very close to buying a couple of those, sadly my garden just doesn’t get enough sun and stays ridiculously wet for more than half the year 🙁
Fantastic workmanship, would love to have a go at doing similar, the main problem is finding such material, purchasing such is for the richest of people which I am not (sadly) but it is great to see this work so at least we can dream
I miss your videos
