Deshojo Defoliation


My Deshojo has suffered a lot from windburn this season. The cold temperatures and the drying breeze has been relentless over the past weeks. I think that the sea air has also been a factor in causing the new extension shoots to wither. With the prospect of some better weather and higher temperatures ahead of us I thought it time to defoliate some of my Acers. The received wisdom appears to be that the red varieties should only be partially defoliated so this has been my approach to this tree.

I think it has benefited from the thinning out and I am looking forward to the fresh growth emerging intact.


The next pics show the hail my poor trees had to endure on Sunday past.
