Mario, a club member from Dublin who is moving to Dubai for a few years has left his collection with me to look after. I have promised to keep him up to date with their development while he is away. Here are a few of them showing new Summer growth.
This Shohin Japanese White Pine was sitting on a box full of grit and has issued roots down through the pot.
This Japanese Black Pine is showing it’s second growth of the year. Very Strong!! I didn’t do the initial pruning, perhaps it could have been held back a little longer to produce tighter growth in the second flush.
And this is a lavender! Never seen one as a bonsai before and Mario has made a good job if it. With 4 weeks of no pinching, we now have a lavender about to flower 🙂
