This Potentilla is a very old tree that came from one of Japan’s most renowned gardens. It was imported here about ten years ago. Bruno has maintained it neatly but now it was time for more than just that.
Detail of the old bark.
The tree had too much foliage in comparison to its growing medium which was unable to provide it’s health any further. This results in weaker and in dying parts. So a rejuvenal pruning combined with an aesthetic one was urgent.
