new spruce

Yesterday I collected a big bag full of smaller and vey small spruce (Picea abies). I am saving them up for a huge forest which I will build in August 2009. The pot is already done by Dieter. But there are enormous transport problems because of the size. It is longer than 2 meters,(7 feet)!! This will be some spruce forest. It will be placed on one of my benches and never ever be moved again later on.
While we sorted out the small spruce here are the ones that are just too good to be part of a forest. They will go into the shohin and small tree collection. But first they have to survive.

You definitely have an eye for raw material, I personally can't see anything in those trees! Can't wait to see the finished products though.

These spruce are certainly good material. You are in good company with the unability to see the potential. I run seminars with great success called "finding the potential in raw material". This is a key skill to learn if you wnat to do serious bonsai.
