Peter Warren Shout Out!!

I’m Famous 😆

Two more videos just uploaded by ofbonsai Magazine. These two have Peter Warren doing the initial styling  on a big Spruce at a demo in Chicago.

I will say that Peter’s demo’s are certainly all about being a teaching experience. Most would struggle to fill 2hours 30 minutes talking and styling at the same time.

However, at one point he did stray from the tree to give my good self a mention. Rather embarrassing really but at least I have it on tape that someone actually likes me !! If you don’t want to listen to all his pearls of wisdom you can skip straight to this best bit at 45 minutes into Part 2. 🙂

PART 2

Not quite posted within minutes Peter but not too shabby either 😆  Wish I could have been there too…

Me stop posting…. NEVER!!

Autumn Approaches

Autumn is approaching rapidly for a few trees here. A few larch are showing a tint of yellow. A few Hawthorn have already dropped all the Spring leaves and are sitting with only late extension growth.

My biggest disappointment this year has been this Fuji Cherry. It is showing Autumn colour now and hasn’t  extended even a single shoot this year!  It feels like a wasted year. I experimented with defoliation last year and although it responded well with a new flush in Summer 2011, I think this may have resulted in it sulking this year. Lesson learned. Maybe it wasn’t a total waste after all.
