    Air layering garden tree

    A friend had this large maple garden tree he said I could air layer. I’ve never done an air layering of a maple and was hoping for some tips. He also does not know how to prune the tree and is becoming a bit over grown. So my question is how do I prune such a large garden tree. Also I’m not...

    Super small leaves JM?

    Look at what I found in a planter. Those are centimeters, not inches. Anyone guess the cultivar name? Cause I have no idea. The plant was about 1.4 meters tall, with very low graft union if any. Trunk was maybe 7cm diameter, from memory.

    Went to buy wire, got pulled in by this chunky trunk. A few cut marks on one side (this will most likely be the back!) It's my first maple, been wanting to try one, thought this would be a good start! Looks healthy and yeah, I'm a fan of the trunk. It's not perfect, but I think it's workable...

    Root Over Rock Trident Maple

    I must have been inspired by @Brian Van Fleet to do a root over rock trident maple when I started this who knows maybe 3 years back? I got the cutting from @Eric Group. I cant remember but I think it's spent its time growing in containers. This time I'll continue but will let roots escape. I...
