    Malus Domestica advice

    Hi, I bought this Crab a few weeks ago at Noelanders, but in all honesty I have not worked with crabapple's before... I'm kinda of clueless here on how to progress with this tree or come up with a working plan for it. I did repot it about a week ago into a slightly larger pot because it was...

In my vision, this will be the center trunk of a...

    Shohin Crabapple Project

    Here's another crabapple air layer I made this year. I'm hoping to keep this one in the shohin size range. My current plan is to sort out the roots and pot into a pond basket this spring and let the main branches thicken up. I'll have to smooth out the chop transition eventually, as well. I'm...

    Mame Crabapple Project

    Over the summer I separated a couple crabapple air-layers and I'm starting to see a mame within one of them. When I separated it, I chopped it at almost the right spot, but now that I see a mame, I need to chop it slightly differently. My question is when, but any tips on making a clean chop...
