I have been planning to change the front and the planting angle of this Thuga Occidentalis for some time. As it was badly in need of a re-pot, today was the day to get the work done.
You can see in the next picture that the roots had filled the oval pot
After some serious root reduction
This is a picture taken last year which shows the new preferred front and planting angle
And this is how it looks at the moment. I had hoped to plant it in a nice round Japanese ceramic pot I have but it was just a little too small. So for now it is housed in a round mica training pot until I can find something suitable.
I still have some way to go with the foliage development of this tree but the new front is a definite improvement I think. The next job will be to fully rewire it in the late summer
