A regular update on the life and times of John Hanby’s Newstead Bonsai Centre……..
Topical Times – Remember Roy’s on the move Juniper
The story of this amazing Juniper was featured in a post on the 6th September 2014 under the Classroom Corner section. The pictures below might refresh your memory.
Recently Roy rewired the tree after it had been allowed to grow freely and strongly. He asked me to return to his garden to carry out another styling operation.
Roy’s carving work on the tree was excellent and the amount of growth it has put on is amazing. Roy uses the same feeding regime that most of my students use and he has had really good results with it.
A heavy branch near the top had to be removed but otherwise it was mostly routine pruning and thinning out that was done in conjunction with the restyling. We were both well pleased with the outcome.
Shortly afterwards Roy purchased a pot from us and repotted the tree. This tree perhaps more than any other we have featured really emphasizes the need to keep taking pictures on a regular basis. What a history this tree has and what a transformation…..Amazing!
Of course, if your trees look the same year after year after year…..then maybe you don’t need to take pictures…..maybe you just need help with your trees!
