Sunny Wales, good time to catch up.

Post  Jeremy on Mon Jun 10, 2013 6:24 pm

Had some time today to sort out my collection in sunny Wales. I have neglected them over the last 3 years due to other commitments. Now i'm back and keen to get my trees back into some kinda shape. ( No, not prison, Surprised Uni. Razz )

A couple of hawthorns, lightly trimmed.






My trees in the sun. Hawthorns, shohin junipers, yew and box.



shohin juniper.



Some of my other trees.

Wisteria, it has 3 small flowers developing.



Box, front and back




My undercover area trees.






Twisted hawthorn.



Bit by bit i'll get my act together and hopefully get my act together. Rolling Eyes

Russell,
Thank you for your comment. I must resist rushing these trees, if I take my time and work at it I feel some interesting bonsai could evolve and I plan to enjoy the journey.

Neil,
Thank you.
I have only lightly trimmed and wired some branches into some order. Getting a branch structure on the hawthorns can be a challenge. Clip and hope they grow, then light wire I think....
It's interesting looking at the pictures in 2D, shows some of the obvious branch misplacements that I failed to spot in real time.

Hi Todd,
Thank you.
It's a blackthorn, collected locally here in Wales. I think it's at it's best in the early spring when still out of leaf it produces a mass of small white flowers.

Yip here in New Zeland after collecting and reducing they are good at budding out off dormant buds on the trunk , but wiring to get some movement in the branches can result in some unwanted snapping. Do you have any Bald Cypress trees superb bark qualities and when you reduce them they bud out abundantly , and you can break the cambium while wiring no problem and great healers . That blackthorn is cool you chaps over there collect a few of those whats the botanical name. Thanks Neil

Hi Neil. The botanical name you are looking for is Prunus Spinosa. In my part of the UK they tend to grow straight and tall, but they are around for bonsai use. Cheers.
