Accent Rose ‘Roulettii’

Love this little rose, an old variety originally from China with a strong scent. Potted in a Stone Monkey Pot.

Bonsai Europa 2015

Not long now.  Here’s hoping I get a press pass 🙂

Here’s the Photography & Social media policy for Bonsai Europa.

Photography

All photography and video is permitted however please be aware that many are wishing to see the show without having to waltz around photographers lining up for the ‘perfect’ shot. Please be courteous when photographing the exhibition. No Tripods as they cause a hazard and inconvenience other visitors. Please ask if you wish to photograph a demo artist with a flash as this can be both dangerous and off-putting.

Social media

This is a polite request that visitors do not post social media updates of individual trees until the event has closed on Sunday evening. Group photos and ‘general views’ are encouraged and a special Instagram frame for ‘selfies’ will be available for instant updates.

Mini Roses

I posted about 5 weeks ago that I’d taken some cutting of some mini/super mini roses, with a 99% success rate they have been potted on and are looking great. A bit of bottom heat in an electric propagator works wonders.

This was them after 3 weeks.

And potted up. Two weeks now from this was taken and they’ve really pushed on. Delighted with results.

Opportunist

Not one to miss an opportunity, I woke up a few days ago to hear next door’s gardener ripping out all the plants from their garden. I went out and had a word and managed to salvage three azaleas, a Potentilla and a Euonymous. Azaleas are quite tasty 🙂 They’ve been cut back hard every 2 years for the last 15 years Better with me than in a skip 🙂

Esprit Bonsai

I must admit, I’m loving the English language version of Esprit Bonsai. I received another batch this week and have really enjoyed the wide range of articles they produce all done with a different slant than their competitors.
