A little ahead-of-time planning

Post  JimLewis on Tue Apr 10, 2012 10:24 pm

Early thots:



The little privet center right is leaning the wrong way, I think. I need a stronger juniper on top (Actually, the trident maple (bottom right) looks best up there, but that probably shouldn't happen if I want a juniper in the mix).

Hard to follow the no-duplicate-species rule this year.

Opinions?

Maybe more to come over the following months.

Jim,
As you know displays are like a puzzle and they usually require a good deal of work before all the elements come together.
This is what I would try first.
1) Flip the stand
2) Bottom shelf: Stone on the left in the now smaller side and Trident on the left with more space.
3) Middle: Privet on the far left, Cascade in the center and small evergreen on the right (flipped?)
4) Top: Juniper on the left (actual front of the tree?) right side open
or- small evergreen on right top and center right side space open instead
5) Small beautiful pot not used in the display
Looks like you are having fun!

Thaks. I'll give it a try. I use this side of the stand because the other has two useless drawers in it (that I have filled with heavy polished decorative stones to provide a bit of stability) and I don't care for it as much that way. But it does help when you discover that all your trees seem to tend in the same ("wrong") direction -- as mine do. (Wonder if that is true of everyone???)
