Morten, yes the tree was imported some years ago. I bought it in 2018 cost an arm and a leg. It is about 68 years old I believe. The pot it was in is a Yamafusa from Tokoname. The new pot is a good quality Chinese one.
Beautiful Beech Geoff, I just purchased a Blue Beech and very excited to see the leaf colour. It will be part of a planned Mixed deciduous forest inspired by Saburo Kato’s mixed forest style creation on pg. 19 of his book
