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 – Deciduous tree workshop June 2013
Some of the trees brought to this workshop had already attended earlier workshops held around February/March. Spring pruning had been carried out, branches selected, growing plans for the forthcoming season had been discussed and agreed upon.
With the trees returning in June it gave us a chance to assess the progress so far. Excessive or unwanted branches could now be pruned back and adjustments made to try and get the best out of the growth predicted for the remainder of the season.
Below you will find a series of before and after pictures showing the growth achieved to date and how we treated it in respect of each tree. Each tree was assessed individually and treated differently depending on what we wanted to achieve.
Despite the slow start to the season with the non-existent spring!…..you can see that most of the trees have grown really well. Mother nature has a way of ensuring that the trees will catch up whatever the seasonal problems placed in front of us.
I hope your trees are making the same good progress.
