A regular update on the life and times of John Hanby’s Newstead Bonsai Centre……..
Topical Times – A tale of two Junipers!
On a recent one to two class these two very similar Junipers turned up. One was a Juniper Chinensis imported from Japan whilst the other was Juniper Squamata which was field grown from nursery stock specifically for Bonsai.
Both trees had been fully wired before the class and were now ready for branch placement/styling. Unnecessary branches were removed as the styling work progressed.
I was really pleased with the outcome. Both trees have come such a long way and gained immensely in stature. They are now ready for some refinement work which could dramatically improve their appearance in the coming years. Excellent potential!!
