Creating a natural rock pocket for a future bonsai planting

Earlier this year I collected some wonderful ‘folded’ rock, this is stone that has a really good texture and colour, perfect for bonsai. I wished to use one of these vertically; this made planting a tree onto the rock rather difficult. The solution was to attach another piece to the back of the stone and make a soil ‘pocket’ that would hold a future tree. I used waterproof cement that sets in 24 hours, I used a chop stick during the curing process to create two drainage/fixing holes in the base of the pocket.

I have two possible trees in development below is a virtual image of a Yew that could work when the foliage has filled out.
