Malus domestica #2
This wild apple tree has been heavily damaged every year by deer and hares and it's very weak as a result. A few others are in the same situation in the garden and I decided that they would be better off growing in pots.
I waited until its leaves had fallen and collected it.
The root system is not perfect but I expect it to improve over time because this species can produce new roots very easily.
The trunk has some nice features.
And a low branch is conveniently placed to become the new leader.
The tree will spend the winter in a cold greenhouse and hopefully bounce back in Spring.
