Rog Ur, a 12 month check up

It’s just over 12 months since Rog Ur was donated to the orchestra and he’s doing well.

It’s quite amazing how resilient this little tree is. Traveling from the Tian Shan Mountains as a seed in a pocket. Germinated in a pot under a hedge in Suffolk then planted out in Cornwall. Stunted and root bound Rog Ur almost tripled his branches last year with the majority of the growth coming from near the base. The original whip lost its leaves about a month before the new growth, not sure if this is a bad sign, will have to see what happens this year.
