Repotted.  Bare rooted half of it, the other half still has some "Brussel's Muck".

I wired it last fall before I repotted, anticipating the new potting angle.  I also shortened the apex.  I need to tweek the branches a little to get the profile right.  The second branch (the one on the left) is beginning to bud back.  When those secondary branches get a little stronger, I'll shorten it back to those buds.

I figure two more seasons of decandling, and it will start to look like something.

You're way ahead of me Adair!  I'm still in the thick of winter (though I'm off to Australia tom for 2wks for 20th yr anniversary...a badly needed vacation lol)  You did a great job on this tree, looks great!
