That looks really beautiful, lovely work. What type of juniper is that?I’m not sure that will work. You’d need pretty heavy duty wire in there and then would need to anneal it. For like $10 you can get enough aluminum 6mm off Amazon to do that bend.
Oh, and I protected mine with vet tape (chosen over raffeta). Not sure it is necessary but I felt better using that with such extreme bending.
You can easily anneal it. I anneal my own wires. Just take the plastic cover off and throw it in a grill with red hot coals. Do it at night, so you can see when the wire is glowing red hot. Then, quickly quench it in a bucket with iced water. And presto, you have annealed copper wireOk thanks. I have some old extension cord so I might switch to copper for the heavy bend
My thing is....you need the runners for the energy to get it potted.im confused by your feedback, whats the proper way to initially trim nursery stock? Do you mean snip the ends off the long branches and encourage short foliage at the ends, keeping all the interior stuff?
