Natter night 11th December 2017.

Due to the cold weather we could not do any work on the trees tonight, -4at eight o'clock, due to get colder through the night.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The only work done was drinking coffee.


It will warm up one day.

Is Bonsai quick ?

No.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I was given this Squamata juniper about five years ago and did not know what to do with it.


This is the same tree, photo taken earlier this year, shows a much improved image.


It will soon be ready to go into a show, maybe two years time.

Bonsai Thursday.

Wet and windy with a threat of snow to come, so what can you do ?
----------------------------------------------------------------

Dave and I discussed future work to be done in Spring on this Squamata juniper.


We also talked about a pot for this Cotoneaster.

Natter night 4th December 2017.

A little low on visitors tonight and only Boxie brought a tree to do some work on.
------------------------------------------------------------------
This Japanese Black Pine which he managed to remove all the wire from.


Having nothing else to do I brought this Juniper in to have a look at.



After a discussion I added some wire and gave it a basic styling.


A long way to go, but Bonsai has to start somewhere.

Pot cleaning.

The television was a load of rubbish tonight, so I have just cleaned all of my pots in the cabinet.
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Even though they are behind glass doors they still get dull, so I coat them with Camellia oil, to make them shine again.


I really must be potty.

Kokonoe White Pine.

My Kokonoe white pine is doing well at the moment coping with the cold weather we are having.
------------------------------------------------------------

The tree when I first purchased it.


First styling.


First Bonsai pot by Bigei.


Thie morning in the shade house.

Bonsai Thursday.

A follow up of my post from yesterday.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

When Dave arrived I was already putting wire on this Boulevard Cypress that I started last night.
This is the tree now after a restyle and the lime sulpher has dried.


This is before I did any work yesterday.


It is much more open now and should grow well next season.
