Hmm, sideways pics, sorry!!
I've been bitten by the bonsai bug too. Did a 1 day course with Greenwood bonsai nr Nottingham in January and I have foubd myself passing sapling and shrubs in so many places thinking ooo that looks like it might make a bonsai....bought a couple of evergreens to have a go at and currently growing on some field grown deciduous babies to have a go at in a couple of years,some before and after pics below the first 2 are the tree from the course
Hi Karen, your trees look good & healthy & you did right attending a bonsai workshop with Corin as its so beneficial to learn from a professional, i spent 6 years being taught by John Hanby & i would highly recommend that anyone who likes bonsai & wants to learn the skills to attend workshops as they are so enjoyable
if you forget your history, you will repeat your mistakes, RoyH
It was a really good day, went with my daughter who likes bonsai too.
I know there are some issues with the 1's I've done at home left too much on the twin trunk but as I get braver I'll thin it out and the second is too wide and too tall but hopefully I can remedy those in time too, I'm nothing if not patient lol
