European Hornbeam - update 29th August 2016

Last update was 19th May 2016.
European Hornbeam, carpinus betulus, harvested from a 20yo hedge in 2012.

This was its first pruning this season, growth had allready stopped for 2 or 3 weeks. This year and next 2 years is all about letting the main brances thicken. So, pruning is left aside until after the end of the growing season. Little wiring done.

Top needs finishing, deadwood needs finishing,...all in due time, not a priority for now.

In 3 to 5 years a nice pot could be possible? A rough 'normal' pot, or maybe a rough slab-like pot.

And, back in May 2012:

A very rough virtual, made in febr 2013:
