So much for Thinning Out!!

Even though I’m trying to cut down on the size of my collection, I just couldn’t pass up this little Cork Bark Elm. I have loads of Corkies, big and small after field growing them over the last 10 years. So why add this one to the collection??

  1. The ramification in there is fantastic. This wasn’t the usual jumble of crossing branches, most of which I would have had to remove.
  2. I liked the soft movement in the trunk and there appeared to be a hidden nebari in there too.
  3. Thanks to Willowbog Bonsai, I’m pretty sure I couldn’t have got it any cheaper 😉

  1. not always the case of course , but this tree tends illustrate why Japanese created bonsai are often more expensive [ not in this particular example !!! ] but generally are well worth the money,

    trees like this take both time but perhaps more importantly expertise to create !!
