Pot options for hornbeam

Post  Tom Simonyi on Sun Aug 22, 2010 6:50 pm

I like the shallow oval the tree is in now, but am considering a new pot for next spring....I would welcome suggestions - glazed versus unglazed, maybe a different shape? Thanks in advance for your input.

Regards, Tom

Unglazed, a little longer and deeper.

I would agree with Billy. Your last pic has the tree in the center of the pot. I would suggest that you place it off center more like your first pic. Let us see what you decide.

The tree will remain as is for a while.  Fyi, the pot is round, hence I chose a more centered planting point.

I think a glazed pot will be better, deciduous trees, apart satsuky and deciduous trees with dead wood ( prunus mahaleb, prunus nume ) are always better in glazed pot, clear colour for spring and summer, blue color in autumn never

I would go with a cream colored glaze for this one, it's so nice and light in it's presentation. I also like the current shape pot.

I support your idea of putting plants in it, but you need to take some good care of these plants the light and right combination of water with it, that's all the plant need.
