Hello peter,
lookin' good!
massive short trunk with some movement.
Could you do the moss away so we maybe could see more of the nebari? And maybe you could make pictures of the other sides?

Best regards,
Yannick

Why do you waste your time with such silly little trees Peter?? You know it would look better on my benches Wink

Having seen this tree first hand (and not having it donated to the House of Monkey) it's a little stunner and with this and the Mugo I'm begining to get very green with envy. Do keep us posted with the progress and I agree with Yanick, lose the moss, it won't help you long term.

Until the next time we meet my friend,
Love, Peace & Bananas,
Simon

Looks very good Peter. Branches placed well, and very good taper. I think you have to remove the deadwood completely to heal the wound over time, or hollow it out and carve it so it look more natural (Personally I prefer the deadwood solution). I think a Kevin Wilson deadwood-style-carving will justify it.

Morten

I like this species very much. I had one but it died after winter. I had it for 4yrs. It looks verry good and it blooms sweet.

Hi Bolas

Your design-idea is not bad at all, it could be cool. I did not think about that.
I will be interesting to see what Peter wants to do with the tree....I have never seen prunus mume flowers in this collour, are they mume?.
( I like your dog)

Kind regards Yvonne

Spring is finnaly around the corner here, did some repotting today.
As you can see the prunus got a new pot, please come with remarks and ideas.
Witch front you like the most? I for one think the first picture is a nice front, the nebari incredible.
