Nick Lenz Pot for Korean Hornbeam

This hornbeam has been in a mica pot for 6 years while I have been building the branches and apex. It is still miles away but in the meantime it will be in a more attractive pot.

New Container for Small Larch Forest

The natural stone this small tamarack group was planted on is nice, but far too visually and physically heavy. Today I planted it in a more manageable stoneware crescent by Chuck Iker. See here for an earlier post about this tree.

    Before. Roughly 40 pounds of Canadian granite.

April 7 2013. Still needs some bud and branch thinning, and a bit of wire. The planting angle was adjusted slightly to emphasize the leftward movement of the group as a whole.
