Created this last year and haven’t touched it until now as it needed a long recovery period. Some of the thinner/sparser trunks at the back are still weak and unfortunately I have lost one trunk in the middle.
I’m relying on a lot of backbudding on the thinner trunks at the back and in future I need to wire or reposition a lot of the individual trees. The past year has been about letting them establish. It’s no coincidence that the two healthiest trees are the ones I grew in my garden whereas all the others were bought last year as a hedging bundle from the garden centre.
