Small Privet Group

update June 2nd 2018.
Privet (ligustrum ovalifolium), recuperated from my hedge in 2016.
First year in this pot, partly raised on a stone.

Will develop nicely in the coming years. Needs a slab perhaps.

Ribes Alpinum

I finally discovered which exact species it is: Ribes Alpinum.

From a cutting in 1996/1997.

Very small size

Alder 360° view

Common Alder, Alnus Glutinosa, started from a 1 season old plant, back in 2011.
Made a 360° view.
Second flush of green coming on nicely, I spread the first pruning over the last few weeks. Another pruning in July.

Birch #2 update

Update of a Birch project tree.
Dug up from a building plot in 2012 and kept not much more then a naked trunk.
First years were slow to develop, I havent got a clue why.

Today I pruned excess growth and started some first and basic wiring. It has to devolop strong growth again now on the main branches, before more work can be done.
