First potting for a Prunus Mahaleb

This tree is an air layer created by my great friend Hans van Meer, it’s been 4 years in the making and was styled by me in March this year. The potting took place as it was strong and ready to go into a bonsai pot. Prior to repotting work was done on the deadwood, it was ‘punky’ as they say in the States… so after cleaning and removing as much of the soft rotting wood, hardener was used to preserve what was left. This styling may appear strange to some but this tree is shown mostly in flower and the wiring is done to accentuate that.
