Prunus Spinosa final pot

Post  Tony on Thu Feb 04, 2010 3:55 pm

Last weekend Terry Foster helped me repot this lovely little Blackthorn. It was quite a challenge to position the tree exactly as I wanted. I removed a large 'stump' at the base of the rootball as new roots had grown nearer the curve at the top (Bottom) of the tree. A hole was drilled through the base of the trunk and wired to a piece of wood that was used to stabilise the tree above the rim of the pot.

This fantastic pot is from my Belgian buddies Rene and Marleen Lecocq this link is to their kiln set up.

Looks like I will need yet another cascade table for Dugg Mudd Rolling Eyes



Here are two details of the great natural shari





The 'styling' of the tree will take place when the new growth is well underway. I am not sure I will keep the lower branch, IF I keep it the position must change as currently it it too vertical.

Tony...Did you have this Blackthorn in mind when buying this pot..The match between pot and bark is just perfect.

Wot a Blackthorn Tony, I can't wait to see it in the flesh.

Great choice of pot. Andy introduced me to Rene and I came home with one of his little pots for my semi cascade Cotoneaster.
I love the rustic banding effect that he has produced on this range of pots.

Hope to see you soon Tony and I haven't forgotten your 5 euros lol!
Okk, Okk,
Simon

Hi Bob, I was searching the whole weekend at Noelanders for a pot for this Blackthorn and late on Sunday Andy (Stone Monkey) and I were chatting to Rene and Marleen are I was buying 'Red' glazed pots for accents. THIS pot was buried beneath many on the stand... I choose it specifically for this tree.

Terry Foster was sure that we could not get the tree to fit... it does very well.

I Know the styling I will do... and we can discuss at the weekend (Sunday morning... NOT erecting the greenhouse.. just having fun)

See you then

Hi Tony.
Thanks for posting.
Very pleasing tree and pot, together they make a winning combo.

Morea is making Dragon a best in show tree/pot combination award for our society show in June 2010.
If you can get the foliage sorted by then, I reckon as a "honery" Twisted Evil member of Dragon, your B'thorn and Rene's pot would be in with a good chance. ThumbsUp

Excellent combination Tony. The pot looks uncontrived, spontaneous and instinctive. Another beautiful Sloe to boot! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Great Blackthorn and pot combination Tony. I would keep the lowest branch, in order to see secure a nice tapering among others. But I also like the curves it makes, and of course the deadwood. Great!
