Acer repotting after storm

Peter+ pot 1_2

In the recent storm of October 28th a large Acer blew over and the pot smashed. I thought that, for the first time in over 30 years, I’d need professional help in the garden, but two heroic friends came to my rescue.

The largest pot at the Camden Garden Centre (and there was only one of them) was the right size but required a large car and removing the garden door to get it home and through to the garden. Then a block & tackle attached to the Cashmere Cyprus above to lift the tree and rootball in.

On the whole I think that the garden is improved by the changes.

I hope we never have to do that again!
