This one will get first style in winter or following one

There is one more in basket as formal upright and two other one in ground but I don’t have pictures 🙂

green beech re-potting

This beech has been in my collections since May 2012 in one pot and one mix so I decided it is time to check roots system and make some corrections if needed


overall view-before






all around nebari




all around roots ball. As we can see there is lot of fiber roots but they are to fare from trunk so I need to prune they quite hard to bring they closer to the trunk





after potting I have found that there is lot of empty spaces which need to be increase with numbers of fibers roots so i decided pack this spaces by sphagnum moss



will check it next spring
