Cheers, CJ

I don't know why the picture turned out so small. I did the same as I have always done.

That's what I got too, Billy. However that's not what it used to be.

Thanks for sharing. I love the tea tree. Do you think it will grow in the tropics? I found some seeds sale in Amazon:

Hi Ray, my relative tried to grow them in Singapore. No luck. The weather in Singapore is hot year round (25 - 35). They can stand a few months of hot weather like those in Perth (up to 42). However they just love a cold spell. I observed that when the weather here goes thru a really cool spell, my tea trees look more radiant and vigorous. I saw two NZ tea trees in Singapore but grown under controlled condition in the brand new over S$1 billion Garden by the Bay.

Very nice to see good examples using Australian natives.
The Albany Woollybush is really different. Nice
The bark on the Callistemon is well developed.
Thanks for posting

You probably just clicked in the wrong box in the copy screen. No big deal.

Very nice show!

Thanks for posting! Jim is probably right. There is a link to the thumbnails which you posted instead of the full sized image. No problem as it is easily seen anyway.

Great catching up with you again CJ. Your trees are inspirational - just what I needed to keep the effort up to maintain my collection.

Thanks Jun. We hope to get more people into bonsai. This is one way to slowly work bonsai into the mainstream of society.

Regards.
