Mugo Pine first styling

Post  Tony on Thu Oct 03, 2013 11:21 pm

I traded a small Yew for this Mugo Pine at The Burrs workshop 2012 From Erik, it was planted in a large flat plastic seed tray in a soil mixture not suitable for the rather damp conditions where I live. Whilst re-potting I saw that all the roots were on one side so decided to change the angle and make a cascading tree. The tree responded well and has thrived all year. Today I styled the tree, I have not wired to the tips of the needles because at this stage refinement is NOT my objective. Branch placement and the establishment of the design. The next few years will be bud development and refining the design. more photos Here
