I love this time of year when the newly collected stock starts to thrust out fresh growth. There is always a big sense of excitement and anticipation as to whether the tree has recovered from the stress of collecting and transplanting. Here is a Hawthorn that has started to throw out new shoots from a major cut. I always let newly collected stock thrive unchecked for two years before any work is started.
I will be posting photos of all the new stock from June onwards. Over 150 trees including Prunus Spinosa, Crataegus, Cotoneaster, Taxus and Scots Pine.
