    Is it due for a Summer prune Keith ? Becoming quite a monster !! And they say seedlings don't do well on their own roots...Lol

    Derek I started an enormous air layer on the left side.. I will try to get a picture of that.
    2+ inch caliper branch being layered. Hopefully it will take.

    I put flagstone on top to keep soil from washing out with rain.
    I moved one this weekend and found roots

    I am planning on getting watering timer to mist foliage regularly
    If it survives it will be my proudest horticultural accomplishment :)

    If there are US members who would be interested in a layer propagation of this tree next year, I would be happy to send one
