Works of pruning
In order to bring back light and space to certain places of the gardens, we must reinvent, reorganize, renew the flowerbeds. The approach is rather positive and the months of August and September are favourable with this kind of work. The next year, we will be happy to rediscover these spaces in another way and we will find new opportunities of planting other vegetative layers. We think of Menziesas, Erica, Calluna and some long-lived of shade. Do you have proposals to make us?
Sounding relating to Picea abies 'Wingle Weeper', emblematic and major figure of the "Jardins du Florilège"
Every spring, this conifer bends more the spinal column under the weight of the new shoots. Its roots adapt unceasingly to its new morphology. However, we are afraid to lose it because of winds and of the snow which would add in weight in a brutal and uncontrolled way. Also, we decided to support it and to take advantage of it to guide it a little. We think of several solutions. Help we to choose.
First proposition :
Steel discreet support (round posts and possibly cable) guiding it in the right flowerbed only. It will be necessary to push it a little.
Second proposition :
Simple support in posts and beams of wood handled in autoclave, allowing to pass its drape of needles over the way. It will also be necessary to push it a little through the way.
Third proposition :
Installation of a decorative rectangular metal arch. To make pass the trunk over and distribute the needles on both sides. This option is more binding because it will be necessary to force it more.
