Philipp puts the sabina globe together

Many years ago I had commissioned this most interesting container by William Vlaanderen. I had the idea and he put it into practice. The trick is that there is a pot underneath this globe that holds the plants. After a couple of unsuccessful attempts (the junipers died) I asked Philipp to place several sabina junipers into this thing. These are established trees with good root balls and they should survive. I will wait a couple of years and then the trees will be styled. This should become a most unusual arrangement.
