G'day Will...

I really like what you are doing with this bonsai...to me, this bonsai looks like a tree...and that works very well for me.

Like Walter said (not quoting), just keep doing what you're doing...

Pat…mounted on my trusted stead, riding off wildly in all directions…

Beautiful tree you have there Will. I’m also interested in the Suffolk Elm you speak of, in fact it’s the first time I’ve heard of it, How does it differ from other Elms? Smile

Hello Fuzzy. The reason I called them Suffolk Elms, Is because they were collected in Suffolk Very Happy. Elms vary enormously across the country and even from village to village. A possible reason for this is population migration and as Elm is a good sourse of animal feed, it is thought that it mght have travelled with settlers.In parts of East Anglia, there are pockets of Elm, genetically similar to Elms found in Spain.

Have you got a picture. If Kev said it was Siberian,then I doubt it was one of mine. I did swap a couple of rafts though.

Thought about putting this one in bonsai questions but also wanted the continuity of this thread for reference. Question. Why has my Hawthorn only flowered on the right side? I pruned everything back after leaf fall, on both sides but not one flower on the left side.

Where did this tree spend the winter Will?
Was it tucked away in winter quarters or left out on the bench?

My thought was that it was perhaps due to lack of light over the winter, ie stuck away in quarters and not turned.
Deciduous dont need light in winter but good bud development certainly does.
What is the root system like? How much of the root feeds the stronger/ larger RH trunk?
It may be that the LH trunk does not have as much root to support and develop both leaves and flowers yet.
May be worth trying to develop the LHS root system bit more from the next repot, perhaps not pruning that side and pruning the RHS roots back only.

The roots have never been strong but from memory, they're fairly radial. The branch growth has also been fairly uniform as well. I'll inspect them the next time I repot. Cheers Nick.

Just thought and more of a question

Post  pmjos on Wed May 26, 2010 5:20 pm

I wanted to ask is it a possibility that this tree was once two separate hawthorns that fused together? so that the branched and roots grew long enough to be different but then although fused behaved differently? Sorry if that's a daft thought but it did make me wonder.
