Cheap garden material that I've played around with since 2012.

That's wonderful, such a difficult specie too.

Very nice tree/pot combination!

I like the way the lowest branches and the low side of the pot manage to convey a sense of movement in what could otherwise have been a rather static upright composition.  

This would not look so good in a conventional pot in my view. As it I think it works very well.

Regards

Thank you! I have one I got dirt cheap that has an inverse taper due to a "whirl" of branches about 3/4 up the trunk. I was about to just pitch it into the landscape but this has given me inspiration.

John - Thank you, yeah they are a bit sensitive and slow growing so I have taken things quite slow. It would be a shame for it to die now Very Happy

Richard - Thanks for the compliment. Yes that little movement of the soil line/pot and the main branch was what I was going for and I also don't think a normal pot would be as nice. To me this pot feels more like a stone/shell and that feels better for a high elevation I think.

JimiB - Thanks for your input and yes they are dirt cheap and never used! Happy I gave you some inspiration, feel free to post your tree here once you style it : ) as I am curious as well.

Thanks for the info and link John, yes I have read this many times Smile Good stuff.

I also follow Ryan Neil's methods of how to address elongating species. Harry's and Ryan's approach to cutting or pinching, ramification versus development match up on the spruce species.
