          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 🙂

              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. 🙂

                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 nice, Ian, I love the pot too.

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