Welcome everyone. I haven’t been in this garden for three years. It looks… how it looks… I’ve already shorn the cypress. I didn’t wait for Michalina. It was sheared three years ago. Even though, it was so long ago, I’ve only trimmed it a little bit and it looks good. Even rare trimming is useful. I’ve also trimmed one of the boxwoods. This one is also out of shape. Someone tried to form a sphere… but it didn’t work out. The boxwood is in such a phase that it has all the leaves developed. The new growth has grown up. Here you can see the aphid. There was the aphid inside the leaves. Wait, I’ll look for it. When you look for something, it’s harder to find it. These are the symptoms of the aphid’s occurrence. Twisted leaves. The lady asked for a sphere so we have to start around it… We don’t trim on the top and not underneath. Just around. We’ll form the ring. I’m trimming it at the time of its growing, so it’ll have even more buds in a month or two when it’ll grow one more time. Trimming causes that bush is thicker. As I said, first we cut on the sides. We have to measure a circle. But for now, it’s going to look like a keg. I’ll go around. How do I hold it? When we trim downward, we hold blades like this… When we cut upward, like this… On the sides, I hold it like that. My hands are far away from the bush. I’ve turned around the scissors but my hands are still further. If I held it like that, it would be uncomfortable. I’ll change the position on top. Here’s wider. I have to trim more. But not deeper than the last leaves. It’s going to be too dry inside. Now I’m going to do the part which you can’t see. Or you can change your position? Here we also have to make a sphere. The owner is going to check on us. It’s not a home garden. But ROD (allotment). ROD Typical allotment. Let’s check it one more time. Has we made a circle? Something is sticking out. Let’s correct it. Here’s a periwinkle. Even if I do the stem, it won’t be seen. But if you don’t have any plant around your boxwood, you can trim it above the ground. I’ll do a little. The sphere is going to look better. This is our next action. We don’t want it to look like a keg. It has to narrow. In one place there are more branches, in another less. The poin is to shape it. We’ve shaped the bottom of the sphere. Some more. OK Now, we’re trimming from the top. I’ll hold the scissors the other way round. First, let’s make slants. I’m going around. I’m cutting to the point where I’ve already trimmed. When the boxwood has new growth, the same with conifers, it’s the strongest. When we cut it off, the boxwood will put the whole energy into creating new buds. He wants to grow back as soon as possible. Just like water sprouts on fruit trees. Many of them is created. And here the same thing is going to happen. And every boxwood grows twice during the season. We may use it to create more buds. We can improve our shrub in the spring and in August. The second growth is long and sparse. And here would be more dense. And we have to shorten them so that they don’t get brown in the winter. Because sometimes it’s dry and suddenly the rain falls… And now I’m going to do the head. Look at the position of the scissors. I have to be very close to the shrub. If I feel nothing under my hands, it means that it is a sphere. And if I felt anything, it would mean that this sphere is still not very round. Logical? Michalina? I would touch the branches if it wasn’t cut properly. It’s my type of a measure. I will not measure the circumference of the sphere. I’m sure there are people who are willing to check me and criticize me. There are methods to measure it on the Internet. Here’s unevenly cut. I’ll correct it. I can’t go any deeper. It’s going to grow back. It had long growth. When we trimmed them, they reversed. You have to be careful. The same with conifers. The growth grows down. When you cut off the top of it. It will be lighter and will reverse to the axis. The sphere could be smaller. Look at that. We could’ve trimmed three or four centimetres deeper. Not more. Because it’s dry and yellow inside. That’s it. No, I haven’t seen any. I’m sorry. Just the ants were removed by a man. And something got lost. No, it’s not necessary. You’ll fertilize in March. Like every other shrub. It needs to have the first growth the strongest. And we have two spheres. One smaller, the other one bigger. Identical wouldn’t look so good.
