Potting season time to start it.

It looks like spring has come to my garden and some of my trees started move, so it is time to change some of they pots.
First one

Parthenocissus quinquefolia


Decision has been made – Juniper Media

I have brought this Juniper with me from my holiday in Poland July last year. Since that time I have been looking at it and tried to find good direction. The decision has been made last Saturday and I’m pretty happy with it.

Tree in September 2013

and end of October at Willowboog and NIBS school

any comments, suggestions, tips very welcome.
