We will now persevere with the foliage to try and get it denser and more compact. At least we now have a good foliage canopy to match the impressive deadwood. There is potential here to create a really good tree. I will keep you posted and if we do feel the need to resort to […]
I believe this tree was imported from Japan during the 1990’s. I acquired the tree around 2000 and it was then sold to one of my students. About 10 years later the tree came back to me under tragic circumstances. I have had to nurture the tree back into good health. It spent several years […]
This styling has established a basic framework for the tree. In the following years the foliage clouds can be developed to encourage greater density and refinement. A repot in the spring into a slightly deeper pot will enable us to plant the tree at the correct angle ready for the next growing season. I hope […]
A client left these two small Junipers with me for wiring and styling. They are now ready for him to collect. I hope he is happy with the result. If you need some bonsai work carrying out on any of your trees why not enquire about our drop off and collect service.
In part two we can finally turn our attention to wiring and repositioning the branches.
Part two of this trilogy finished in 2018 when the tree had been wired, styled and left to recover. I am really pleased with the progress this tree has made in the last three and a half years. He has a new angle, a new front and a new pot and once again stands proud. […]
Part one had finished in July 2017 after a pruning back and thinning out of needles to balance the vigour in the tree. We now catch up with the tree in 2018. Now the tree can be left to grow and recover again……….to be continued.
I acquired this tree some time around 2005. I had been looking out for a black pine and was attracted to the impressive base and substantial nature of this tree. A repot had obviously not helped and I became worried about its health. I finally decided to plant it in the ground in one of […]
We left the tree growing well in the summer of 2016 but now it was time to consider the next step…..repotting! This tree really has come a long way and hopefully has a good future to look forward to. I like the natural styling of this tree with the branches rising up from the base […]
