I’m looking for advise on how to treat the chamaecyparis obtusa plant I start for nursery stock two years ago
My intention is to make it in formal upright, long way to go still.
Anyway this year it is growing quite well and I would like to have advices on
how to manage the pads as as you know c.obtusa do not back bud at all on brown wood.
The yellow lines represent a possible place to apply cuts in order to try to keep the foliage close to the trunk. Is this correct?
Also I have some quite dense pads, and I’m not sure wether I should try to keep them on a single line of vegetation avoding overlapping of pads to avoid they turn brown and fall in Fall.
I have also found this article online but I’m still unsure about correct procedure.
@bonsaitonight I have seen your post about Hinoki here (https://bonsaitonight.com/2010/08/20/hinoki-workshop/), very very jealous of your work
Thanks for the help
