A regular update on the life and times of John Hanby’s Newstead Bonsai Centre……..
Topical Times – Autumn in the bonsai garden
The colours are getting better day by day. As one tree fades and the leaves begin to fall another tree takes over and the green begins to change. At the moment the weather conditions seem perfect.
Trees catch fire in crimson and gold so the contrast with the evergreens is stronger than ever. Newly bared branches are with us for the winter but will soon be pruned back to shape.
The bonsai are gone…..safely tucked up in their winter quarters but not before being looked over to check on their progress this year.
Big John has certainly improved on his ramification and is finally beginning to look the part! The first picture was taken in March, the last two in October.
