Natter night 4th & 11th November 2019.

Having been very busy over the last few weeks, I have not had time to do my normal Monday posts.
But now I am almost finished working on the new kitchen, I am back as usual.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

This Ficus belongs to Gibby's son Bob and was brought along to be transplanted into another pot, as the one it has been in had no drainage holes.


This was the pot.


The new pot on the right.


Tree and pot together, it should grow a lot better now.


Kevin's tree for tonight, a young Boulevard Cypress.


After wiring and a basic styling.


Boxy carried on with Ken's Pine.


Now looking much more open.


It was quite a full house last Monday.


Graham brought this Acer for some advice.


He got quite a lot off Boxy.


Last night I gave Gibby this Willow to practice wiring on as he has not done a lot. With guidance he learned a lot.


The tree after styling.


Meanwhile Graham and Boxy rewired this small Larch.




Then did the same with this Hornbeam.


Looks much neater now.


Hopefully I will have more time to post in the coming days.

Itoigawa Juniper progression.

Before and after on this Itoigawa juniper.
---------------------------------------

The tree in August 2019 after being left for a couple of years to gain vigor in the foliage.


After a rewire and a good clean up of the Jin, Shari and bark.


Another one or two years and a good feed regime and it will be ready to go into a show.

An extremely good night with some good work done once more.

Still not completed, but looking better.

Really pleased with the way it is progressing.


Kevin's newly purchased Ivy.


Happy at his work.


Pleased with the result.

Also happily working.


Looking a lot neater now.

BTA show part 2.

Photos of the show in Doncaster yesterday.
--------------------------------------------











There was also a good selection of traders for all your needs.








Nice Hinoki Cypress.





I for one really enjoyed the day, getting to meet up with a lot of friends from the Bonsai community.
