I have eventually got around to having a go at styling my newly acquired garden centre Chamaecyparis featured in an earlier post. Click Here. So now, on show for the very first time my all new and exclusive design. The branches on the right side of the tree were actually longer and thicker than the branches on the left so the foliage on the right tends to be further away from the trunk this will rectify itself in time with proper pruning. I actually think it doesn’t look too bad just now and has some potential. The bottom jins will probably go but I think the tree should fill out nicely and form some decent pads. In a nice pot, with some tweaking of the branches etc, I should be able tp achieve a fairly nice image in the future. The top foliage on the right of the tree is a little light because I had to remove some thicker branches toward the apex of the tree to try and maintain a balalance in branch thicknesses. This will soon be replaced with new growth as the pads develop. This is a shot of the jin at the apex which I think is in harmony with the design. I hope so anyway. If not it can be removed or shortened etc.
