For the weather we had the most hot and dry summer ever here with no rain at all for almost 3 months, but now things are changed and the temperature are around 20°C and we are having some rainy days.

I've also got rid of most of the weeds in the pot, except for a nice shaped one that seems to be a flower of some kind, and added some new fresh soil to see if this help with the yellow leaves in the bottom part.
Some people suggest me to prune it a little bit but I want to wait the transplantation on the ground.
The weather now is really hot with very few cloudy days, no rain and the temperature is constantly over 30°.

Regarding the overall growth of the tree, seems that in this moment it prefer to develop lot of lateral branches, expecially in the middle-lower part, respect a growth in height and this can be bue to a lack of space in the vase for the roots.
But next year it will be planted on the ground and will have plenty of space then.

The bottom part start to look a bit messed up but i like that the tree grow wild at least for now. Maybe next year a pruning will be necessary but we will see how it become. For now I'm very happy of how it is coming along. However this is definitly its last spring in a vase because i want to put it in the ground but, with this active germination, I am scared to hurt the roots so i will probably plant it at the beginning of next spring.

However two weeks ago I've decided to move the tree outside the greenhouse because the sun is now shining almost everyday. I am a bit concerned of the night hours because occasionally the temperature still drop below zero, but I think that the tree can manage a weather like this now. I also want that the trunk become a little bit stronger therefore I've removed most of the support sticks hoping that the tree will get used to the wind.

But bad news are not finished since some snails decided to eat some leaves of my tree.
In the greenhouse the tree is more protected from the wind and the cold but it receive less sunlight so I've removed some old sticks to help the sun especially in the lower part were there are still a lot of yellow leaves.

However in the cold season the growth should be much slower and it might be the right time to search a new and bigger vase where the roots can have more space. However i have no real plan about that at the moment. I also have to think about a new location because here the tree can enjoy some raindrops but it might be a problem when the real cold will began.
From the tree health side the leaves at the bottom are still yellow but I don't really think that it is a huge problem.
