It may not look like it but I took a long time getting this….
To look like this….
I repotted to a 7 gallon tall container from it’s original 1 gallon pot. I had bought a new 10″ pot for it originally but when I saw the crazy roots in the 1gallon pot, I realized 10″ container would not be big enough. The roots looked healthy but very crowded. So hopefully the tall new container will be sufficient.
I decided to make the trellis myself which took a surprisingly long time but was most therapeutic tying all the twisty wire ties and deciding where to put each branch.
I tried to apply the same method to my Tropic Prince peach but it just doesn’t look that great 😦
I still have not attempted to prune yet… Eek! My peach trees are so crazy looking. Must do something at some point! When I bought the tropic prince, it was literally just a stick, just one branch…I am amazed at how much it has grown in the last few months.
