Post  landerloos on Fri Feb 05, 2010 3:23 pm

My Acer beurgerianum got a new pot from Peter Krebs, I bought it at the trophy.
I asked the guy what he wanted for it and was so surprised by the price that I bought it.
Good choise or?????

Nicely matched size and shape on the pot. The color looks very good with the silver gray bark of the maple.

I like the pot, not too sure about the size of the rock for this root over rock though. Not much can be done about it now. Given long enough, the tree will probably engulf it completely.

I dont see that as a problem Kev, a challenge yes.
If that happens we restyle the tree Wink

I dont have a problem with the rock Peter. It's the lack of shoots/ twigs on the branches. I have a feeling you will have to cut back severely to improve the structure. The trunk is good though Very Happy

I dont think the rock is too much of an issue either. That is, as long as you shorten the tree. I would take all the branches to stubs and rethink the canopy to incorporate a downward growing first branch and a shorter tree. Tridents can do this very quickly if you have a good plan. The pots very nice.

Will, the tree was cut back at a workshop with Tony last December, it was pushing leaves because I put it in a frost free very light room.
I think it will backbud rapidly now, and afterwards I can remove the new unwanted shoots.

Neil I will consider your option aswell.

hello landerloos,...

Like the tree pot combi, but see a lot of unbalance/read amenities (google translation?)
Points in the tree that don't seem to be attractive.

Is it possible to set back branches in total.
Set back only a few wil unbalance the tree in futere, size and thickness.....

my point's marked in green.
The dot represents branch on outer curver Embarassed

Let this be straight, i am not a teacher, these are just things i see....

grtzz from a ever getting warmer holland,...buds ar popin!

Machiel,
