For Balcony  (Cloud Pruned Box.)

This is our cloud pruned box, it must be at least 18 years old, I do need to remove a branch or two, but it is difficult to know which one, because you cannot put it back if you have made a mistake lol

Im a great fan of cloud pruning DD. You just need to be a bit brave dont you? Im trying to do a cloud pruned pyracantha with a single stemmed tall whippy specimen, but its in its early stages at the moment. I also like those lovely spiral clipped conifers the GCs charge so much for. Im having a go with some cheap little supermarket conifers that grow fast, but Ill let them grow on a bit first!

Poppy I had no idea how to go about it when I did this one, just took a chance, and it paid off, you go for it, while you are still young lol
