Maintenance – Cotoneasters

In 20 years of bonsai I have never witnessed growth on my trees such as I have seen in the last two weeks. I spend some time on Sunday getting them back into shape.

These two Cotoneaster have been trimmed multiple times this year and this is the growth in just the last 2 weeks.



After trimming. You’ll noticed I missed a bit. I’m making a few changes to the image in that area and I’ve left extension to allow me to do a little wiring and improvement.


This was in a show 2 weeks ago!


And now.
