Repotting a Big Larch

Post  Ed van der Reek on Thu Mar 17, 2011 10:12 pm

I want to show you the repotting from a Big Larch from Hans van Meer.
This tree have lot of roots,and we take away lots of stones and old mountain soil.
You have to see this tree in real life,it has got a outstanding branchstructure I have ever seen on a tree.
If all goes well,Hans will show this tree next year on the Noelanders Trophy.
Do you want to see more from this tree or the repotting, you can see it on Hans van Meer his blog

Im extremely impressed by that tree! Larch is one of my absolute favourite species too.
I really wish I can collect some nice ones myself. But I have no idea where to look. I dont even think I have seen a small one in the wild before.
Only a few very larges trees.
Congratulations!

Another stunning tree from Hans. Really appreciate the patience in developing the tree in a large container, rather than potting up too early. Great work from the pair of you. Very Happy

Hi Hans and Ed,
Impressive tree.

Great to help Hans, i got myself a bit of a tennis elbow, so i can imagine Hans will be happy.
But i never thought of using a stick for that, well Hans is patient with his pupil.
