Scots pine literati

Post  M. Frary on Thu Oct 26, 2017 9:29 am



I got this tree a couple months ago from Vance.
Hopefully I can find a pot for it by spring so I can show it at our club show this year.

open to design thoughts or just showing off ? Razz

as an aside, our local club has a rule that the tree must be in the possession of the current owner for 2 winters before it can be shown... it is supposed to suppress the "check book artists" but as an unenforced rule it doesnt work so well... theres always somebody buying a killer tree in chicago and showing it 2 months later in milwaukee Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes  but its funny as hell when someone recognizes the tree and they get called out Twisted Evil

at any rate, one of your winters should count as two... Wink

Mainly showing off. The heavy wire I'm ordering will be here soon. Then all I need do is put a few bends in the trunks.
I'm also in the market for a round,plain,unglazed pot for it.
I sold a juniper at the same show and will probably see it this year. I don't think there is a rule in our club saying how long you need to own a tree in order to show it. If so then fine. It will only be better after 2 years.

we do have a couple potters in the AAC...
Johnny Menzel could whip one up for you before spring, I would think, and he is still very affordable Razz

his email is in all our communications, but let me know if you would like me to make introductions.
