Field maple #5

Mugo pine #59 in pot finally

 Thomas and Andy helped me to get this huge beast into a reasonably good Chinese pot. We used pure lava. The roots were fine and in a year I will start working on this tree,. The potential is great.

European spruce #80

Thomas and Andy helped me to plant this monster into a reasonable pot today. We used large lava from IBUKIas substrate without adding anything to it. This I do with large trees in large pots. For smaller trees I would add some rough peat or similar. I hope for backbudding. In a few years there shoudl be enogh new growth to form a good crown. We will report.
