Friends from the South coast

Post  chris on Sat Nov 13, 2010 6:27 pm

Antony and Mal came up for the weekend and theses were the tress we worked on Satarday
First a Hawthorn


After talking about the possibilities Antony made his move


This is a tree that we have worked previously and so it was just a case of slight restyling and re-angling .

Another Hawthorn of Antonys
I forgot to get the before on this one but it will be repotted tomorrow in this pot, I will post it when done

Malcolm's great Larch


This is a very old Larch that has been grown from a seedling for more than 40 years, Malcolm wanted to tidy it up and do some light wiring

Finally complete and into the alcove display

Why did you decide to carve the second trunk on your Hawthorn? Was it an issue with the trunk thickness?
The larch is superb!

Hi Will, both the Larch were in Mr Pitt's fantastic pots but the hawthorn was re potted into a Mo pot

Hi Todd, The reason for going with the smaller trunk line was the good line and taper, I am waiting with baited breath to see next seasons growth the balance of this tree could be great

Regards Chris.

Here is a really nice English Elm that Malcolm brought along, its been 7 years collected, he thinks he will keep it in this pot for another year or two, this way he can thicken up some of the bottom branches. I think its going to be a little gem
