PRUNING & TRAINING KUMQUAT (金柑の剪定と誘引)



It was cold but fine today, and I pruned and trained a kumquat (Kinkan)
as a kind of espaliers to the wooden fence.  
I cut branches that were growing directly towards or away from the fence, 
and trained side-branches horizontally and tied them to the welded wire mesh.

This is, I think, a attractive way to grow tree fruit,
and takes up next to no room in the border.


今日は寒いけど良い天気で、
金柑を剪定して板塀へ一種のエスパリエ仕立てに誘引しました.
手前と塀に向かう枝を切り、
横の枝を水平に誘引して溶接金網に結んで固定しました.

これは果樹を育てる魅力的な方法だと思いますし、
ボーダーでほとんどスペースを要しません.  







I harvested and ate a few fruits.  
They are seedless and, therefore, quite easy to eat whole. 
(need not to expel seeds)

何個か実をとって食べました. 
種無しなので、丸ごと簡単に食べられます. 
(種を出す必要がありません)
