Collected Trees Recovery

The trees collected in April are now sitting in my front lawn, recovering from the lost of leaves and roots. The apple trees started putting out new buds in May. On the other hand, the Hawthorne has been slow in putting out buds. In mid to late June, the Hawthorne finally put out some buds. There were some low buds that got attacked by the rabbit, but sufficient buds remain for the tree to be healthy. I’m pretty confident these trees will continue to survive until next Spring. At which time, I will be digging them up, and putting them into a colander to further develop as bonsai next year. In particular, I have great hopes for the windswept apple tree. The Hawthorne will be interesting for me from a personal learning perspective, as this is my first Hawthorne tree. I’m still having a tough time figuring out the front for the Hawthorne, but I’m hoping it’ll come to me after I get it into a pot (colander).

Here’s the windswept apple. Looking to plant it with the left side lower (imagine photo rotate counter clockwise).Windswept Apple

The multi-trunk apple. I think I might end up cutting off some of the trunks, as it might look more like a clump style. Will decide later on to see where the actual tree is…

The dual trunk Hawthorne. This might end up to be the side, I’m struggling to see where’s the front, but it’ll come to me next year.
