    Yes I've now cut the wire and allowing it to heal over the little bit that's left. I think it will be alright also but you tip about copper wire is well received. Thanks Alain.

    I'm quite optimistic about this year looking at everyone's trees. Your Mikawa is no exception D.

    29th March 2021 and the continuing diary of my Mikawa Yatsabusa. The cut from the name label wire has made no difference at all and the buds are swelling very nicely indeed.

    4th April 2021 and I wanted to show this, as we have had an overnight frost, the first of many this week apparently. It seems to have coped unscathed.

    Update: look at the 10 day difference. I wouldn't have noticed if I wasn't keeping this photo diary.

    I agree D these photos diaries on the forum are an excellent way to watch progress. They can get lost in those big threads otherwise. Looking good btw.

    17th April 2021and I feel it is important to show not only the good but the bad in this forum, so here is my Mikawa Yatsubusa this morning with tell tell frost damage. Not too bad, but too many more frosts and the first flush might not make it.

    17th June 2021 and my Mikawa yatsabusa was looking pleasingly green this morning. Perhaps it enjoyed the sprinkle of rain last night ??
