Old friends, is a group Junipers i have had for 22 years , they are in a home made Bonsai tray , made from plywood and then coated in Gelcote , a fiberglass product , and if given a quick refresher coat , when repotting comes a long , it will last for years

WOW!!

I think they are STUNNING! They actually look like trees. If you faked a background and foreground I don't think anyone would ever think they were anything but three stately trees growing at the edge of a field - like the ones that make you smile Very Happy every time you drive down that country road.

What's the variety????

Hello Russel , the variety is Blauws , the tree on the right hand side of the group has always been a bit slower than the other two , but this year i have been foliar feeding the right one only , and it is improving, the tallest tree is 56 inches high , and the pot width is 45 inches , thx

One of the most realistic representations of a group of trees that I have ever seen...and I mean ever!

Hinsky,

Have you perhaps "photoshopped" an actual forest, scaled it down, and added a tray, a yard and a hedge as a background? Very Happy

Absolutely Incredible.

Yes agreed! Really outstanding! WOW! If I may, my only criticism is the level of the soil. I would bring it up higher to almost meet the edge of the pot. Have you considered a slab for this grouping?? Nevertheless really beautiful ThumbsUp

Hi Guys

Post  hinksy on Thu Aug 19, 2010 7:58 am

Just to say thank you all for the views , and the lovely comments , the reason for the low soil level was because i had just removed the old moss, and weeds from the pot surface , thanks again ,lol
