Hiya, bit of a silly question really, but I have recently got a round pot to plant a pine in and I realised I've always planted in square pots, do the the same rules apply for potting in a round pot ie slightly to the rear and off centre to one side or another or do you tend to plant in the middle of the pot?

It depends on the symmentry of the tree. I prefer to limit literati and very balanced trees to round pots.

I have very limited knowledge, but this year have repotted 3 trees into round pots.
I ended up placing them all as close to centre as possible.
Have no idea if it's correct or not, just prefered the look.

Hi Steve, blimey you responded quickly! The tree I'm planting is a balanced hence why I got a round pot! What I'm asking is should trees in round pots be off centre or right in the middle?

I think this tree would look fine in the centre of the pot.

How big is your pot?

Thanks Corin, I'm sure it will look great in the pot you chose for me! Will add a pic when I've potted it.

does the pot in question have feet?

good point hungkuen, if the pot has three feet make sure two of them are visable to the front, it will make the whole composition feel more balanced. i always try and plant in the centre of round pots.
