I'm liking Peter Krebs ideas for a pot---smooth sided and very symetrical in contrast to the roughness of the tree. To my eye it adds an elegance to the rough nature of an old tree. The pot disappears and the tree really stands out.

Hi Mike: Like your work. I like the latter Dale Cochoy pots w/crack. I like coarse finish and the color/mix that Dale presented w/deeper pots;sort of similar to Horst's. Would the real shallow/slabs compromise "long term health of tree if intense cool/wet(this year) or het in summer? I know nothing about horticulure of this tree but wonder 5-10yrs down road . p.s. Would like to see your indoor set up. Dustin Mann Rolling Eyes

Mike, were you able to find/order a pot for this one? Spring '11 is just around the corner.

Still considering...

No progress on the pot front Dave. It would be perfectly happy developing for another year in the current temporary pot, so I'm not working too hard on finding one. If I run across one, then I'll repot in the spring. If not, then I'll make a decision next Fall and commission one.

BTW, I just put my trees away the day after Thanksgiving. Let a guy rest, won't ya... Smile

Nice drawing Vev, thanks.

That shape works well with a more vertical angle for the tree. Dorothy preferred that angle too. I've been working the tree with a more slanted position. I'll have to think about this a bit more...
