Literati Scots pine

Collected from a bog in autumn -07. Regained a solid rootball really fast and grew strongly during a few years.literati_1
Recently collected and planted in this charming plastic flower pot.

It grew a substantial amount of foliage and roots in the coming years, and in 2010 i brought it to a workshop with Mario Komsta. We arranged the tree into an upright literati pine. The following spring i decided to repot it into a ceramic pot.

The pot was a little too small and the soil mixture too light, which made the tree to fall over and come loose in the pot. I resorted to tying it to a board to stabilize it.
