This is the root system I’ve been waiting to upload since asking about pruning my Wisteria when I first joined Goy.( I hope you read this Ray, as I don’t no how to send all this to you) Lol. This is about 4/5ins up from the ground. The piece below this, I can’t get my hand around it, and from my middle finger to my thumb measures 8ins, so I’m trying to give you an idea as to how thick the trunk is.
It now splits into two. Sorry the pictures are not very good, I had trouble trying to get into it. This part is about 1 1/2 – 2 ft from the ground.
Now it splits into about 4 branches. This is about 3 ft from the ground.
Then splits again and away it goes, up and over the trellis.
This is how tightly it’s winding itself around the wood.
And this is what it looked like about a week ago. With all the sun the last few days, it’s gone beserk.
The shoots are just everywhere, they’re twisting round my security lights, they’re attacking my pear tree, and they’re trying to get into next door but because they’re up in the air just dangling, they’re getting caught in everything so you can imagine how much I’m looking forward to AUGUST! Lol.
