    Broadleaf division - Leo's Prunus Mume 'albaplena'

    Hi all, I'd love to sign up for the contest with this cutting of Prunus Mume. I purchsed it for 7.99 Euros few months ago (possibly May?). It's just been potted from a plastic container into this clay one, hasn't received any style whatsoever, yet.
