Birch yamadori & some flowering

This tree was one of the first yamadori I dug up while living here. I originally grabbed it for the bark and accessibility even though it is very ugly, it hardly got a glance. As a result, this tree grew great and the pot is absolutely root-bound. When you ignore material, let it grow freely, do not alter the direction it’s facing the sun constantly and fertilize it the same as the trees that get more attention, one ends up growing with vigor.

Hosta will open soon

Have a good one.

I bought this tree a little over a year ago. The pot it came in when I brought it in was much too small, I thought, for the health of the tree. I placed it into a larger pot but I still think that it is very suitable for this guy. Then, seeing that it was doing quite well this summer, I finally did something with it and now I like this tree many times more.

Now I cross my fingers or as the Czech’s say, “holding my thumbs.”
