Bonsai Thursday with Dave.

Dave and I had another good day with this Juniper he brought with him, as it had been lying around his garden for a number of years,[ he thought it was dead,] but when he came across it again and noticed the foliage growing on it.


The deadwood was a bit of a mess, so a good tidy was in order.


 We also had to find the live vein that is feeding the new growth.


It took quite a long time to find what we were looking for.


Once it was cleaned we applied a coat of tree gum, which is a natural tree resin, to preserve and seal the deadwood.


We still have a lot of work to do and I for one am looking forward to doing it.
We think it needs to be repotted at a better angle in Spring time and then to be given a good feed for at least a year to develop strong growth before a restyle.
