Serissa Foetida raft style trainer

Postby alpinebonsart » Thu Jan 28, 2010 9:10 pm

This is my Serissa Raft that i have been training for around 6 months .Dug from my garden along with numerous others it will make a very nice forest once the canopies fill out . In desperate need of wiring , finding the time is not so easy as this group requires weekly trimming to keep it under control

The raft consists of a twin trunk and a triple trunk , the suckering on the side will one day become another Raft Forest .Cheers Alpine
