Literati Prunus Spinosa 'Fifty' final potting from Duffet to Albright

Post  Tony on Sun Feb 07, 2010 10:16 pm

Bob came over today and we spent the morning repotting a few of my trees. Having an extra pair of hands makes the job so much easier.

This is a Prunus Spinosa that I collected on my 50th Birthday... it’s called ‘Fifty’ and it has been in this pot for 2 years. This Beautiful Duffett pot was fine to ‘bring on’ the tree but not a good choice as it is way to ‘chunky’.





Here are the pots I have for this tree... on the left is Milan Klika and the right is Brian Albright, both would fit the tree well.



I chose the Albright because of the 'free form' of the pot suited the movement of the tree.



In preparing to pot this tree it would need to be stable, the root pad is not dense enough to simply wire into place and hold the tree in the pot so a little assistance in the form of a steel rod is inserted into the base of the trunk (under the soil line) this is Bob kindly cutting it to length.
