Rock planting_part 1.
Two students requested to create a rock-planting. Here one can see the stone (rock) picked by Raimond.
Rock sceneries demand a special soil mix; the correct mixture of Keto and Akadama plus water.
These are three out of four Black pines from our nursery that will be used. The material is adapted to the size of the stone and already trimmed and wired.
The buds are almost fully developed, they will not be shortened in order to prevent a halt of growth while replanting.
The trees are being thoroughly unraveled.
This is Micky’s grey volcanic rock.
This Juniper, see post of 30/01/2013 "Last weekend's workshop_1" was styled earlier with the purpose of creating the rock formation today.
Will be continued tomorrow.
