Mark and Ritta’s Ezo Spruce on display at the 2019 Swindon Winter Image Show

Mark and Ritta have some stunning trees and this year they did not disappoint with the two main exhibition trees they displayed.

The first was a Mountain Maple (Acer palmatum) from Japan that they have owned for 5 years now since 2014. It was in a Tokoname Shuho pot and had the most magnificent ramification. This tree also won best chuhin in the main competition.

The second tree was an Ezo Spruce (Picea jezoensis) also originating from Japan in a Gyozan pot, which they have owned for 6 years now since 2012 and a superb tree, displayed in style.
