At Peach, we also use pretty unique equipment to help get the best out of each session. Want to know more? Download our app. Link in our Bio ☝🏻
Inosculated and bundled. The phenomenon of inosculation (self-grafting) occurs both naturally and by intervention. This tree in a designed landscape was probably ‘bundle' planted, where two saplings were planted together. John Evelyn recommended the method in the 17th century to rapidly make a wide spreading crown. Bundles were usually of the same species but there are examples with two or more different ones. The trees often fused so successfully that they now appear as a single tree. A Gingko biloba at @kewgardens (one of the 'Old Lions' planted in 1762) was thought to be a single tree until it was shown on analysis to be two male trees bundle planted as saplings with a female tree grafted on #trees#landscape#ginkgobiloba#inosculation#planting#wintertrees#history#naturalhistory#kewgardens
