Tucking in a Corylopsis for the Winter
Updated: Nov 7, 2017
Winter is coming, and the deciduous trees have been dropping their leaves. If you're a deciduous guy like me, this is one of the best times of the year because you can finally see the branching you've been working on during the growing season. Today I took a look at one of my Winter Hazels, and did a little maitnence work before winter, which involved cutting off dead branches and cleaning the moss off the trunk.
Trimming off dead branches
A clean nebari, a toothbrush and water was used to scrub the moss away
Finished for now, and looking like it will give quite the show when it's flowering
See the image at the beginning of this post for a dry nebari! We'll feature this tree again during flowering season, which is usually the first week of March here in Portland. Stay tuned!
