Guest Book Tab

I’ve added a guest book tab. I keep wondering who all these people are who find my day to day bonsai doings of interest. If you want to remain a lurker, that’s ok, if you want to say Hello, then this is the place to do it. Either click on the image or the Tab to leave a message.

Blue Diamond

I repotted this Rhododendron Blue Diamond this year exposing about another inch of trunk base and nebari. The pot is far from ideal, but was the only option I had size wise for it at the time. I was told that I would be better to remove all flowers this year but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it! I did take an hour and go over the tree removing any tips with multiple flower buds. Some tips had 4-5 flowers each. I reckon I have removed about 1/3 to 1/2 of the flowers but I’m still expecting a nice even show of colour. Its just starting to open its first few.

This is the back, but when in flower it gives a better display.

Bonsai School Part 4

Just added Part 4 of the Bonsai school series to YouTube. I’m now sitting here trying to decide if I’m going to take the day off work. The sun is shining and I’ve a garage to get ready for about 15 bonsai mates coming tonight to play with wee trees. What shall I do?
