Chairman,s chat June meeting

This month we had Malcolm making a return visit talking about how he works with Junipers and Larches, his talk covered his preferred compost mix, feeding and pruning methods.


His pruning method favours the sneaking up on the tree, in that he does not carry out a full prune in one sitting preferring to prune out over a numbers of days so as not to shock the tree and allow it to recover and cutting rather than pinching out foliage.

He also showed us some of the material he was developing his final tree was as he called it a natural style large Larch with very good bark which was being developed over a few years.

Another good evening with Malcolm.
