Master Class Croatia 2018 #19

A few days ago a group of very advanced students met in Andrija Zokic's garden in Kastela, Croatia. This is right at the Mediterranean Sea in Dalmatia, Croatia. There the climate ls like southern California. We worked on Andrija's trees together in a  group. I watched them, took photographs and once ins while had something to say. The work on good to outstanding material teaches how to improve already very good trees. It is perfectly OK to repot at his time of the year in this area as the have normally no frost and in addition a large greenhouse is available.  All trees were collected in Croatia over the last ten years
