Re: Pleaching very mature lilac - To graft, or not to graft?

Argh, the cracking. Might have been too aggressive and forceful on the weaving/tree may have been too big already. I hope it adjusts!

That's usually done when it's more flexible and younger I think? Then again, how do they get taller ones that are woven so high? Not like you can go back and reweave the bottom!

Do keep updating though, very interesting project!

I just cut down 20' of buckthorn along my fence to put in something that's not a "hate tree" (I'm so scratched up, crazy stuff has 2" thorns tough enough to puncture tires!). The owners like 30 years ago planted them right ON the fence on purpose too! Improvised barbed wire??

Thus far I have some Willow (ooh, now THAT stuff should pleach...) and a couple of other things. More will have to await next year, so updates will be very helpful!
