One to One : Scot’s Pine

Another one to one today, this time helping out with a tricky repot of a Scots Pine. I love this tree! It’s been in a wooden box for a few years to increase vigour after a few years dealing with Needle Cast. I helped with the first styling of this tree back on 11th September 2001, an easy date to remember due to the tragedy that unfolded as we finished the tree.

This was the tree today.

It’s been nice to keep a connection with this tree over the years. I even looked back in my files and found some older photos.

And a virtual image I made back in 2002. Not too far off the mark.

    • Pot not ideal Piotr, on that we agree, but all that was available. A round primitive type pot is being sought for the next time, even just to transfer. The angle or dip?, I think you’d need to see it in person to assess as a few things dictate this. I’ll still be here on the 21st 😉
