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 – A simple Beech forest…..
John brought in some Beech he had been nurturing for a while with the intention of bringing some of them together to create a forest…..he even came with the pot ready for action.
Soil was removed and the trees were separated. We then brought them back together in a group arrangement. We even managed to use all the trees and fit them into the pot whilst also leaving ample space to enhance the landscape aura.
This was a relatively simple creation using simple young material and yet already the result is just so effective. This little creation can now develop into a very good mature looking forest planting in such a short time and was well worth the effort!
