new cherry, prunus # 9

This is the cherry catch of my lifetime. It is a collected Prunus mahaleb from France. The first thing was to cut off the handles of that plastic container. The blue pot is By John Pitt, but it is too small. I blew it up for virtually planting the cherry. I will have to commission him to build me a new one. Within the next weeks I will edit the crown, treat the wood with biotrecleaner and then with wood hardener. Then I might plant it into an intermediary round bonsai pot until spring of 2011 when I will have the new pot by John Pitt.
