My ‘Peter Warren’ Japanese Black Pine

Here it is in ’10…it’s been in that can for at least 4 years:

Being styled by Peter at a demo in April ’11. Note the plaid redneck turntable. I have since aquired 2 actual turntables…

And now in Spring ’13, repotting

Saw bottom of root mass to make it easier to work out the soil.

It would have been good to have a slightly deeper pot available…but mounding up the soil should help with airflow through the root mass, and should be ok for a couple years:

All set for the ’13 growing season!

  1. Plaid redneck turntable? That’s nothing! This weekend you’ll have the opportunity to witness the glory that is my turntable: an old short order ticket wheel with a cutting board mount! Lol!

  2. I love the movement in this one Brian. Quick question: Do you plan on lowering it in to the pot over tme or do you want to keep it high? I like both options, so I’m just curious about your thoughts.
