Small Cotoneaster in bloom

Post  JimLewis on Sat May 01, 2010 3:38 pm

I've been working on this small raft for 3 years now. It's nice in bloom. Fruit is a very pale pink and nothing to get excited about. The driftwood is just decoration.

Nice Jim, is that drift wood or a rock. Which ever, I like it. Just realized you mentioned drift wood

Dear Jim,

Beautiful tree. I enjoy the contrast between deadwood and flowers.
Is this a Sara Rayner pot?

Thank you,
Lycia

You say it's just for decoration so is the driftwood not a permanent part of the first one, Jim? If it is detachable, any chance of a pic without it?

I like them both btw, but would like to see the "rafting" of the first one without the decoration

Your wish is my command, Fiona -- always. Smile

Lycia: The pot is by Robert Wallace, Hendersonville, NC a few miles up the road from me. You can see many other pots of his in our Pots forum.

Can you tell me, or point to a link, more details about Cotoneaster care & styling? I recently bought & did preliminary work on a 'Tom Thumb' that wants to be a tiny apple tree. When can I put it in a bonsai pot?

The people I know repot theitr cotoneaster in spring, before the buds open, and this is what I also do.

But I actually repotted cotos in the summer too, without cutting too much of the rootball. I don't think this is recommended though.

I thing I had forgotten because of several rather mild winters in a row is that a recently established coto, or one with few roots should be protected from hard frosts : I lost two rather large air-layers I had separated last year for lack of protection. The third one, which was partially covered with leaves, made it.
