I believe you are referring to chapter 18.

Yes.

There are a few more snippets elsewhere in the book. The electronic version makes it easy to pick all up in a search.

To add a bit of color to this thread, here are recent images of my literati Scots pine. Pinus sylvestris, 100 cm high, around 100 years old, collected in Sweden in 2001, pot by Derek Aspinall.

Watch the difference in feeling with a white backdrop and a black one.

A literati must also look good black and white. Let's see.

How did you get this one to sit still for the shoot, Mr. Pall? ;)

Ana,

I told it old Tyrolean mountain tales and it was listening so hard that it forgot to move.

Well, to fix such trees into a pot so that they stand by themselves and don't loosen while transported is an art in itself.
