I’ve just uploaded a new selection of Magic Ceramics accent pots to my FlickR Album. Some fantastic pots from Maciej Targosinski including some Kusamono dishes, tiles and even bonsai pots these days. It always pays to support local talent. Prices are given on each photo description. Give me a shout via Contact Me if you are interested.
Another great video from Bonsai Empire.
I know I’ve probably mentioned the auction being held by my local club before, but for those who missed it be sure to check out the new trees just added, among them are a few very tasty Beech trees that have been developed over 25 years.
All the auction trees are now residing at my place and can be viewed here before the auction, just contact me first as climbing the fence results in dog bites and a lead injection 😀
Here’s the beech, and the auction page can be checked out HERE.
I had hoped to get to this Berberis Clump sooner to do a little initial wiring but the tree had other ideas. As it’s been in this big plastic training pot for a few years I decided it was still ok to repot now and make it a little more manageable around the garden. I also wanted to get a closer look at the base to help me make my mind up on a front. For some older posts about it see, HERE, HERE and HERE
This was one option for the front. I’d chatted with Peter Warren about the tree when he was last here. He liked this option but said it would always look like a garden tree. He pointed out another option.
This is his option which I also love. Either would make a great tree. Time for a closer look.
Plenty of fine root in there
I didn’t have a lot of pot options but this one actually fitted the bill ok. Loppers show scale of this big fella.
A few alterations
and a few more…
And this is the final result. An even better base that I thought, still loads to do to make a bonsai out of this but I think it’s a keeper.
It would appear that while I wasn’t looking my blog has passed the 1.5 million hits mark.
After a slow year blog wise in 2015 I’m really trying to get back in the groove with the whole blogging carry on.
A big thank you to all who follow on a regular basis and even those who just pop in now and again for a wee look. Always feel free to comment, I enjoy the input and making new contacts around the world.
