New Beech

I found a great old beech this winter and grabbed it during March, but unfortunately after growing well for 3 months, it kicked the bucket at the end of June. No idea why but it was a shame.

Still I wanted another Beech because, when you see the huge ones in the forrest, they are just badass. Recently, I went to a small expo and found, in good health, a slim feminine beech and for the price I felt compelled to bring it to the balcony and give it a different look in a few years.

Re-pot next year. Beech usually have long root-balls and the fact that the owner before me managed to keep it from growing out is very convenient. However, I will probably have to do an air layer to give it a better nebari, maybe in the spring it could be the better option than just re-potting.
