    Re-styled Kuromatsu - some refinement

    Pin It

    I attracted some 'scathing' criticism last October when I restyled this old Kuromatsu from an Informal Upright to a more 'Literati' style.  Personally, I am sure that I am on the right track with the changes.  Some refinement this Autumn(2020) has made some improvement to the overall style.  

    I will be allowing the tree to 'rest' over the cooler months, fertilising moderately so that I can transfer the tree into a much smaller round pot next Spring... more in keeping with the Literati style.

    This image shows the progress from last October.
