As I have a few Larch I call this one Tall because, you guessed it, it’s the tallest one I have.
I bought this tree about 10 years ago from Robert Porch in Scotland. It had been styled a few years previous but had become overgrown again. It was collected in Scotland and the main attraction for me was the quality of the bark. It was always going to be a formal upright (or as near as makes no difference) but I was happy with this at the time.
The Tree as bought in 2002
After it’s First styling by me way back in 2003.
The roots at first repot in 2003. The pot ad to go back to Robert as it wasn’t part of the deal. A pity it was Derek Aspinel I think.
This is it in November 2003 after removal of the Wire and showing some Autumn colour.
Some detail of the bark.
and the tree in more recent years. It’s a pity about my gap in photos with a lot of my trees. The lost years 😦
It’s current image in 2011.
