Thanks, Jon. Three years ago I did not look at shohin or mame, but I found Morten, and slowly have been adding shohin as well as mame. When I looked around my garden I realised that I had a lot of smaller trees that were shohin. Also as I am getting older I have more difficulty in handling bigger trees, in fact I have one that I cannot lift any longer. Not sure how I am going to re pot it next time!
I am looking forward to the Zoom meeting, should be fun.
Hi Geoff, nice to meet you on Zoom. I hear you on the size and weight of the big trees. That’s one BIG reason I joined up with Morton. sure having fun creating these little guys for sure. I used Mortens field maple group planting as a guide to make one of my own this week. I was a lot harder than I thought it would be, so we will see how time treats me.
Jon, yes, nice to talk to you and the others. I wanted to do a small Field Maple group but I could not get any small enough trees! So I went for a big group and also did several clumps. I am hoping to be able to cut down some of the ones left over once they have grown and established a bit, later on this year or maybe next. There is a nursery that had some small ones but I could not go there and they would not send a small order.
