Classroom Corner – Just a bit of pruning…….

An open window into the comings and goings of students and their trees attending our regular weekend and midweek bonsai classes under the ever watchful eyes of John Hanby.
Classroom Corner – Just a bit of pruning……

……can make all the difference! Often we prune for that initial styling, removing a large amount of foliage to find the tree within……which can then be wired and styled.

Sometimes trees have grown really well during the season and have to be thinned out to regain the shape but also to let in light and air to promote good health.

Sometimes its just long extension growth that needs pruning back. A previously styled tree may need pruning before it can be wired and restyled.

The trees pictured below appeared at recent bonsai classes and as you can see they have all benefited and changed as a result of just a little bit of pruning!
