A bonsai to be proud of! Any chance of another pot? Straight sides, a bit longer and wider, a bit less deep? :lost:
Big chunky tree - this pot is too light, would suit a more delicate conifer. Only my negligible opinion. :palm:

Thanks Lisa,

Unfortunatlly pots are outside my current budget,infact I am trying to sell one of my trees to pay some bills.

Understand where you are going with the type of pot but I am still trying to sit it in the pot at the right orientation.So this year I will repot in the same pot.

Regards,

Peter

Update
Have been wiring this over the past 3 days. Must be a Scots pine weekend with Gerard's post.

Kind Regards,

Peter

One of the fabulous things about growing bonsai is as you get old and decrepit your trees get old and beautiful

Hi Peter,

One of the many things I admire about this Scots pine is your masterly placement of negative spaces.
Gerard, did you notice?

The lower right part of the tree is the best part. Very nice.

Love this tree, as I do with most of what Peter creates. And I understand your point, this is something I hope to learn to do better.

Gerard, you have some excellent material, but may I ask if you have had much experience in needle plucking, e.g. when, where and how? I can't interfere with this, Peter's, thread, but maybe you could post a couple of lines on your own thread?
Apologies for this, Peter. Or perhaps you can add something re: work on pines, in particular this great Scottie.

I just finished plucking the old needles (last seasons) from one of my scotts pines. It's pretty important. It helps in regulating and balancing strength of the individual shoots and equally importantly, it helps reduce the internode length over time which is a vital thing long term.
I don't go so far as counting needles - way too anal - but I just remove all the older needles from each shoot leaving only the ones surrounding the new bud cluster. You may need to leave some old needles on very weak shoots.
After that, you can regulate and balance by removing some of the new needles on the strong shoots. Always be sure you don't tear the bark in the process.
