12 Jul, 2012

 

Its a great shape, was good when i bought it buts just got better n better

12 Jul, 2012

 

how tall was it when you got it stevie?

12 Jul, 2012

 

about halfway up the first pane of glass on the door, its grown alot, and had to re-pots

12 Jul, 2012

 

thats incredible!!! it certainly doesnt object to being in a pot does it!?

12 Jul, 2012

 

Its now in the biggest pot i could find so will do as well for next year too, after that!! who knows

12 Jul, 2012

 

Make a bigger pallet pot??

12 Jul, 2012

 

ahno thats an idea ; )

13 Jul, 2012

 

Could look quite good painted black?

13 Jul, 2012

 

could look authentic ~ thats the word i needed ???

Really a very nice lad! I am surprised, as the pot looks quite small. Or is it just illusion of the photo?
May I ask which side of the house is this?

17 Jul, 2012

 

Its a bit set on wide angle Kata, but the pot is actually very big, I'll put a pic on or do a blog soon so you can see.
The door is my front door and the wall to the right is my neighbour

17 Jul, 2012

 

I meant on what world side is it oriented - north, east?

18 Jul, 2012

 

The door wall and front faces S/SW Kata so plenty of light and a bit of shelter too : )

18 Jul, 2012

 

Hm. Strange. As Acers usually do not like this side. It is too hot and too sunny.

18 Jul, 2012

 

Its in a shady spot in the morning and only gets the sun when it has moved around in the afternoon so when the sun is up and then getting softer as the afternoon goes on.
So not too hot.

18 Jul, 2012

 

I cant imagine it looking any better or happier than this so it must like it there!

18 Jul, 2012

 

Now that's what I call stunning!! i have a Sangokaku (Sensaki) at the front of my house, just like you. It's probably half the size. I've now got something to aim for!!
