Hawthorn #6

European hawthorn, Crataegus monogyna, collected in fall of 2008. First image of April 2009. In February 2011 it got the first serious styling. The tree will be left alone for two vegetation periods. Only the long new growth will be cut back by beginning of August. In two years we will probably have to take off all the wire and see it from there. This is quite thorny. Therefore the wiring is not all neatly done. My hands look like a was in a fight with my hands with a lynx.
I am happy about this tree and look forward to develop it over the next ten years.
