The potentilla combination is excellent. The pot is exquisite. I love the saxifrage as an accent.

I like all your trees. the elm, gardenia, all of them. Is the gardenia shohin size?

Robert, those are awful. I will take them off your hands if you want.  Evil or Very Mad Wink 

Great stuff.


Folks, Robert is Scotland's great bonsai hope. Just wait 'til you see his chojubai.

Robert, you are very kind. Growing shohin size trees and keeping them happy can be very challenging. You are doing excellent work with them, styling - and healthwise. Great containers too.

Best,
Dorothy

Many thanks to Fiona, Leo, Lennard and Dorothy for your encouraging remarks

Leo, the gardenia is 13.5 cm in height so well within the shohin category

Fiona, I thought "Scotland's great bonsai hope" was your undisputed title

 I think you'll find the suffix "less" attached to the last word of the statement when used to refer to me.  Crying or Very sad Laughing

Thanks Neli, I am not sure if it is any easier to import trees here to the UK than it is to anywhere else. I would think that the processes throughout the European Union are quite similar. I hear that the quarantine period in the US is much longer than it is here

Thanks to John Quinn and cakiemcangio for your nice comments.

Jeremy, your observations are much appreciated, I have been following your recent posts over on the display forum with great interest and admiration for what you are doing. IMHO, you are the man of the moment as far as display is concerned.

Neli, the chojubai are my most recent acquisitions, you can see some pictures of them on my blog
http://robertnochershohinbonsai.wordpress.com

Looking forward to seeing yours

Beautiful trees, and I always like shohin more ...

That's a nice potentilla, and that gardenia is the biggest trunked one I've seen yet. One of my favorite plants, wonderful scent.

Thanks Neli, I don't think yours are weird at all. Chojubai seems to be a universal favourite at the moment.

Thanks for the comments Brett, I am sure there will be plenty gardenias around with bigger trunks. What attracted me to this one was the movement and taper in the trunk.

Well, no such Gardenias here at the nursery, so have to grow my own trunk.

My friend wanted to send me a chojubai too, all of his are not like yours and Neli though, they are all low height and spread out, like this -> http://dupuich.smugmug.com/Japan2011/Bonsai-pics/Kita/i-KKm53qQ/0/S/20111027-DSC_0051-S.jpg

Anyway, should have one soon and join the Chojubai club Smile

Thanks Brett
The chojubai in your link are very famous trees. I think mine are slightly shorter than those in the picture and nowhere near as well developed

Here's another shohin. Root over rock juniper.

You need to work a bit on this juniper...it looks a bit two dimensional on the foliage front and is missing an apex...but I am sure it is in an early stages of development and it will be sorted out soon. I see you left a small branch to develop as an apex.
But it has lots of potential. Love the rock and the composition. Interesting tree...
Junipers are famous for not liking their roots exposed much to the sun...so most of the time very little root ( almost none) is exposed when done with rocks. It is the trunk that is attempted to be attached to the rock mostly.

You should not worry about your chojubai...most chojubai are styled like that...as me and Jonas (bonsai tonight) agreed to call them weird messy but beautiful.
