Unfortunately I didn’t get the opportunity to take more photographs as I brought the two together. With limited time available to complete the demo I had to keep the momentum going. Positioning the tree on the slab pot was indeed a challenge, trying to get it to sit in the right position where I could […]
This year was one of those where a lot of my trees were in need of repotting so I had no option but to get stuck in and meet the challenge head on. I feel happy too knowing I have at least 4 or 5 years now before I have to consider this task again!
