Sometimes I work on nursery trees, sometimes I work on client’s trees……and sometimes if I’ve been a really good boy I get to work on my own trees. Hopefully these regular visits will give you an insight into what goes on behind closed doors……….
Studio Stories – Catching up with my Korean Juniper
The last article relating to this tree was published on the 4th June 2015 under the Topical Times heading and described how the tree was repotted in the spring earlier that year.
The tree was allowed to grow unchecked for the rest of the summer to recover from the repotting process and he continued to grow well.
Spring 2016 and it was time for the tree to move forward again. I thinned out the foliage and removed any branches that I thought would not be required. My helper Len then set about carrying out a detailed wiring of all the remaining branches. This is a very large tree so it was quite a task but Len rose to the challenge magnificently and performed his usual excellent job!
It was then down to me to reposition all the branches and give the tree it’s next styling. I was really satisfied with the outcome as the tree continues to make good progress. There is now already a lot of back budding inside the tree which should help us achieve the greater density in the foliage clouds that we are aiming towards.
This is a very powerful impressive Juniper bonsai!
