Did we already know this?

Jerry, a fellow forum buddy over on Wee Trees Bonsai Forum, posted a link  to a BBC article ‘Stunted’ pot plants cannot reach full potential.

Worth a read through, however, didn’t most of us already have a fair idea that this was the case?

The full PDF scientific paper on the subject can be read here. Some interesting observations if you can spare the time to read it.

Trim and Tuck

Yesterday I did a little trimming back of Summer extension growth on a few deciduous trees before tucking them away in the green house for Winter.

I’m trying to increase the overall outline of this Trident maple and have therefore allowed for more extension than normal to remain.
