European Hornbeam (carpinus betulus): raw material repotted

European Hornbeam (carpinus betulus)

Since a few years reduced from a +/- 18yo hedge into raw material. Building it back up, from roots to canopy. Trunk will never be really 'special' as to tapering. Obviously a lot of carving still to do in the future, especially get some more taper in the upper 1/3 of the trunk. I repotted it after 2 years, into the same plastic container which I chopped a good few centimeters. Potting mixture: cocopeat, vermiculite, zeolite, lava, all in about equal parts.
