I received a delivery of Kaizen products that I’ve been eyeing up for a while. I’ve tried the Green Dream before and it seems to be pretty good for my more developed trees. For my garden grown material I’ve always used whatever feed I’ve had handy – usually Baby Bio or chicken manure but this year I thought I’ve try this Green Dream High Nitrogen feed in the growing beds. Its organic and has a lot of other minor supplements that maybe my material has been missing. Lets see if it makes a difference. The bark cleaner/algae remover is for a few rough textured pots that I’ve found it hard to clean up. Maybe I’ll post about the results at some point.
I was afraid that I had lost this Fuji Cherry last summer when it was preyed upon by devouring caterpillars and the foliage withered. Flower buds are appearing so its definitely not dead! I removed the weeds and gave it a light 0 nitrogen feed so hopefully that’ll give it a wee boost.
Bought this mame Hinoki Cypress (Chaemycyparis Obtusa) a couple pf years ago from a friend who had it upright in a drum pot. I left it initially and then repotted at a new angle to become a future cascade. I’ve left it alone for the past 2 years. Finally I’ve wired the primary branches. Seems to be a fragile wee thing and can lose leaves/branches easily. Primary aim is to grow an apex from the branch that I’ve twisted upward behind the trunk.
