Marco, how do you manage the buds? Do you cut them all off each spring/winter to keep the growth close to the tree, or what exactly?

Love the cascade btw Wink Cool tree.

How was the pot made? Could you fire it in a pit kiln and harden it up?

How's the tree looking these days?

With spruce tendancy to bounce back after wireing and strong verticle growth habit, have you had issues keeping this tree in the cascade style? Looks nice.

"Fore", I let the tree grow free in spring and feed him well. So my intention is to get the tree very strong an healthy. When I cut the new growth in summer, the tree makes a lot of new buds back in the old wood. So I can get it more compact within a few years.

"Jason_mazzy", the pot is made of concrete, unfortunately a not frost resistent one, so no chance to harden it up.

"Hawthorn" the apical dominance of a spruce is the reason why I created this upright treetop, also its a cascade. Not only for practical reasons but also the tree should express some typical characteristics of a spruce. And a cascade with an only downward bended crown is not typical for a spruce.

Regards,
Marco

Hi Marco, this is beautiful and realistic,
I want to grow a bonsai in cascade style, your advice
for me,on styling the trunk and anything else? I would feel like cleared from the misty ideas, if you did.

Thank you and Regards,
