first proper styling juniper

Post  stavros on Thu Feb 10, 2011 4:29 pm

This is a juniper (i think juniperus horizontalis) bought from a garden centre a few years ago.
I attempted to style it twice in the past but i got stuck. The only important thing i managed was to put it in a pot. The last year, it was sitting in a pot
A couple of weeks ago it just struck me and i decided to repot it and restyle it, at least roughly. So here it is the before and after pics.
Your comments are welcome. (Sorry for the 'before' pic, since it was taken after i removed a couple of branches....)
Thank you.

I recommend a shallower, unglazed pot.

Hi,
Tilting the tree about 20 degrees to the left would give the tree a more balanced look. Once both the pads on the branches develop, the tree is going to look real good. All the best on this one...

Regards
Ravi
