the monster pot by Mateusz

This monster by Mateusz Grobelny is really something. I have a few trees for this one! But they are all in the USA in Harrisburg, Pa at Nature's Way Nursery. Well, we might be able to transport this beast as extra luggage. Or does someone have a tree for it in Europe?

new pots by Mateusz Grobleny

All these huge pots are by Mateusz Grobelny from Poland. I cold possibly trade one of them.

how dense is enough?

Fraxiuns ornus, flowering ash. This one is extremely dense. Goats have done this and it stays like it in my garden. This kind of tree is, of course, only fit for winter view.

Japanese maple #13

Japanese maple, Acer palmatum.

First image 2010-11, as I got it. The new pot by John Pitt works very well, I think. Also the fact that I dug up the nebari heps a lot. I am quite satisfied with the tree so far and probably will exhibit it soon.
