A regular update on the life and times of John Hanby’s Newstead Bonsai Centre……..
Topical Times – Bonsai?…..are not they those small trees?
Ask anyone you come across about Bonsai and I am sure they will only be too happy to explain to you that it is all about small miniature trees. Yesterday’s workshop was certainly not all about small miniature trees!!
True the material arriving on the class were Bonsai in the making…….but small??……..you must be joking! These three giants arrived for some pruning advice. An Eleagnus, an Oak tree and a Field Maple.
Impressive trunks with excellent potential for some carving work and branch development. They are undoubtedly long term projects but with the possibilities for creating some amazing trees!
I will endeavour to keep you up to date with our bonsai journey…….
