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.
And after a tidy up and old needle removal…
Then the repot
and the result
Over exposure but kinda cool all the same …
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.
