Chamaecyparis Pisifera Bulevard - Update

A little bit more than two years have passed since the purchase of this tree in a local nursery. I think that during this period the bush developed quite nice, into a solid tree.

2009-04 - Chamaecyparis Pisifera Bulevard

2011-06 - Chamaecyparis Pisifera Bulevard

Next year it will be transplanted into a new, more suitable pot, which will be lower, much wider and very likely oval and unglazed.

Besides regular care, which includes almost daily pinching of new growth, feeding with nutrition and watering, my plan is to developed a number of details and then the tree should be ready for its first exhibition ... let's see.

The begining of the story is available here.

Progetto Futuro - 3 Episode

I spend this weekend in Podvin where we had the third episode of the Progetto Futuro School. Raje was a great host and next to all other stuff he prepared a Tokonama, specialy for this occasion (without the clothes on the photo of course).

Enrico Savini and his asistant Tommaso Triossi provided knowledge and experience, while the whole group created a great atmosphere and some good discussions. 

2011-06 - Juniperus

The first year of Progetto Futuro is behind us, I learned a lot, made some new steps and realized that there is much more to learn. Now I will take some time, analyze everything from different perspectives and make plans for the future...
