final pot for prunus

This is my fat sloe. There are millions of sloes (black thorn, Puruns spinosa) all over Europe. But they are extremely difficult to collect. You collect ten and eleven die. And then you only get thin sticks normally. So this is a gem, an extreme rarity. It has about 100 flower buds. Let's see what it looks like in three weeks.
