    PyrocanthaHi Geoff/Morten,
    i have a small variegated pyracantha, is this a less vigorous variety or can it be treated the same as the normal one? It is still young, only as thick as a pencil.
    Thanks
    Andrew

    My tree is a mature one, and vigorous so I can do it, but for a young tree like this it needs to grow on first I would suggest.

    Like Geoff says πŸ™‚

    Give it some growth first. The technique of removing leaves is for detailed ramifications at a more mature stage.

    First, it is necessary to keep a lot of foliage to build up strength and growth. Then later the defoliation technique will be valuable for a more detailed design. Feed well. Let branches and trunk grow to thicken up. πŸ™‚

    Just repotted mine in a deeper pot as it kept filling the old shallower one with roots every year…..hopefully I can get 2 or 3 years development before it need repotting again! 20220227_120537

    That’s a nice looking one Ian. They are growing roots fast. A strong tree in many ways.
