Repotting and Styling a large Sabina Juniper

I purchased this Sabina Juniper at the Noelanders Trophy in 2009, a year later I repotted the tree into the final planting position I wanted ready for styling. When the tree was collected it ‘appeared’ to lend itself as a semi or full cascade, however I was sure that it would make a very good ‘upright’ tree. The repotting was done exactly 12 months prior to styling. I worked the tree with Enrico Savini as a demo at the Best of British 2011 Bonsai exhibition in Birmingham UK.
