The Oak continues to grow at a huge pace. The shoot at the apex now measures 29cm - and shows no sign of slowing down yet. I cant recollect having seen a shoot like this on an Oak before - it must be very happy where it is and with what its being fed. There is also some useful growth on the bole which i am more interested in right now than the giant shoot.
The captured field maples are doing ok - the larger one seems to be getting a grip on life - but the tiny one is still strugling. i continue to mist them as often as possible.
The sharp eyed observers will note that the poor little oak is surround by those pesky Japanese maples. tsk tsk.
