Winter pruning in ground bed

winter pruning of my ground growing bed has begun .time to reshape the trunks via selective pruning .
iIt has taken30 months to produce a reasonable trunk and nebari.

Many of the deciduous trees will be removed this year in late winter . They will then be root pruned and grown on for another year to define main branches and begin the ramification process. Many of the trunks have developed to over 60 mm in this time and nebari,s have reached 100 mm.
Shown here are golden pyracantha and Japanese flowering cherry. Had these two trees been grown in pots their development would be considerably lacking.
The next stage of growth will also help to reduce scaring from larger cuts.
