So far I have style 26 individual juniper medium and small. I have also on order 4 trays. 800mm, 1000mm, 1200mm and 1500mm, Fingers crossed hope to get it by June or there about. If time permit hope to have 40 plus junis that I have grown the last 10 plus years all styled. Then, the fun begins. Looking forward to this project and hope there is no hip-cups on the way and everything will go as it should be. Again mother nature is as such any thing could happen, but is still fun and keep me on my toe. How many trees in the final setting, your guess is as good as mine, Just hope everything will fall into place,
Yours sincerely.

Got to root pruned all the juni about 40 of them for this exercise but unfortunately the tray is not big enough even though is 900mm. Looks like I might have to make one from marine ply for the time being till the one I ordered comes in. Here are some pictures of what I was doing today.

Hi There

BTW forgot to mention I got to see these guys up close and personnel last month, they are stunning.

Leong, just a thought you mentioned about the base made out of marine ply, we didn't speak about the retaining sides?

If you had the ply set up on trestles you could place the trees in as you want them, mark or measure out the oval shape you want to the size close to the pot on order.

For the edges you could use a strip of 0.5mm or 1mm thick galvanized sheet metal, or if there is an aluminum outlet nearby they may have a flat bar size of 25mm / 32mm x 3mm. That could be wrapped around and screwed into the side of the marine ply, after cutting to shape?

If you were going that way I would use 40mm or 50mm long treated pine screws that come galvanized or treated for rust.

Just a thought at 3.55am on a Sunday Morning :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:
