TOPIC: Ilex vomitoria in training

Ilex vomitoria in training 2 months 1 day ago #36758

This Ilex Shilling has just been replanted from original nursery container. I will see if it survives the 75° winter in Florida. I will post more pics this spring if it survives my styling.

Nice. The branches seem a bit long in relation to the tree though. But I know, it's a work in progress.

You are right. Once I start getting some new growth I will be cutting it back so that the proportions are correct.

Nice base material. For next time hoever, wiring & repotting at the same time puts a lot of tess on the plant. I would recommend first getting it settled, and a few months later wire, of reverse.

I think the wire is not doing all that much though.

I think you are right. I removed the wire and nothing went back to its original position. Thanks
