RESTYLING MY MUGO PINE NAMED “LITTLE CHAPEL”.

Hi everybody,

last week I rewired and restyled my Mugo Pine named “Little chapel”. And since than I have been waiting for the weather to break open to shine a little light on to my little Photograph aria in the back of my garden, but no such luck! So the picture of the finished tree is not the best I ever made, but I hope it will do for now?!
Below: I collected this tree in 2004 in Austria and gave it it’s first styling in 2006.

The foliage mass has doubled and a lot off the new growth is closer to the trunk, so that is good! The old curling branch (second one on the right) that has a old natural Shari’s running along it, is not wired but supported in to place by wooden sticks to prevent it from damaging! The different foliage layers are hard to make out in this flat looking picture, but believe me, they are there! Smile Next, if the weather alowes, the deadwood will be worked over, cleaned and then treated with wood hardener were necessary. And than it is all treated with a double coating off lime sulfur. I do like how this little tree is progressing! I hope you enjoyed this little update?!

    Hi Joan,
    I am glad you like my Pine. There used to be much more lovely small mushrooms, but I accidentally knocked them all over during the wiring! This last one is actually a orphan now, poor thing! 🙂

    Barcelona…….supongo que hace mejor tiempo en Barcelona que por aquí?! 🙁
    Chears,
    Hans van Meer.
