Tom,, That is a very nice tree..I like the open spaces between the foliage pads.. If I may ask where do you get these trees ?? I want a boxwood but around here there is nothing like that to find. good job with the styleing of this one.. take care john

Thanks, John....good hearing from you. I purchased this tree and one other kingsville from Dale Cochoy about four years ago when he was selling off some of his collection...my biggest regret is that I did not purchase more of them...he had several for sale which have long since been sold at shows, etc. I did find a lead on the internet....try PreBonsai Mark (he is on FaceBook). Occasionally I see kingsvilles on Brussels website as well as New England Bonsai....hope this helps.

Best regards,
Tom

The pads looks topiary-ish to me (sorry)...maybe after the tertiary branches developed, it will look much better.

Looking at it more...I think it can be easily improved if the branch wiring (styling) is modified even w/o grafting.

Another thing to consider is to graft branches where there are long stretch w/o branching.  I have lots of big boxwood but only a few small cutting that were sold to me as Kingsville but I honestly question if they are indeed Kingsville. Sad

John,

I second Meehan's Miniatures. They have some very nice Kingsville boxwoods in stock. I was looking at them recently.

Email Martha and discuss the budget. She will send you photos. You can trust these folks, first class.

Best,

Augustine

I apologize for the poor resolution of this image. It was taken with an I-phone...usually the resolution is somewhat better. The height is eight inches from the soil line.
