Nice tree.  Did you repot, or was it simply slip potted into the show pot ?

Dave

it is repotted every year.  root fill in the pot and will block the drain hole by the end of the year.  we repot it into the show pot(cut roots).  and then after the show, we slip it into unglazed growing pot(tokoname pot)

Hey boon,

What's the best way to work with potentilla as far as achieving ramification? you think you could gimme a bit of a step-by-step  of where this tree was and how you got it to where it is? (which is amazing btw) I have a rough piece of material i am working with, but i have not seen a ton of info on them. id greatly appreciate it!!!
