Turtle back Olive
« on: February 10, 2011, 10:10 AM »
The cool of the night has me motivated to do a little work but with a few drinks I have put the cutters away.
5 months since collecting I was hoping a few trunk chops and wiring would see this turtle back forest on it's way but even though it was in a full sun area I think it was a little congested and needs more sun first.
Although I think cutting the most vigorous trunks back to the most usable leader at the moment would not hurt.

Forest?  Or clump?  Either way, looks like some great material to work with.
