I use heavy feeding for the creating of prebonsai.

I also use heavy/everytime fertilicer for trees who needs restyling, or new trees who need to grow a canopy.

but before I start this scedule, do I find it important to create sacrifibranches on the lower brances, and cut back the top first, to make sure the tree, will end up having the fattest branches low, and finer in the top.

A tree who is ballanced/finished in styling, and begin heavy/evertime feeding, will soon loose taper, the top will take ower, and the branches on the lower part will go weak.. the new growth in the top will have too thick branches, compared to the lower branches. And the delicate twigballance from the top, to the low branches will soon be lost.

IMHO Kind regards Yvonne

Hello Yvonne. As this tree ramifies,I will weaken the strength of feed a bit but not the regularity. You talk of losing taper as the top takes over and the bottom branches get weaker? Only if the growth is left un checked or managed too late in my opinion. Not feeding will also have this effect too.

Thankyou Shohindude

Merdad. Thankyou for the link. I have read it several times already.

Hi Will

I know you are checking up on your trees...and this light "warning" was to other bonsaigrowers, who is never in this bonsaiworld, and not to you. Sorry if it looked like this.

Kind regards Yvonne

I have been working on this English Elm over the last few evenings. The day before yesterday I heard the very sad news that Steve (Harleyrider) Jackson had passed away. Steve made a huge impression on me and although I only met him once, it felt like meeting with an old friend. Our friendship started on the Internet Bonsai Club back in 2009 and we chatted and took the p**s out of each other constantly from then on. Steve was always really interested in the Elms I've collected over the years and because they aren't common where he lives I gave him one of them to make into bonsai.(and is talked about on the first page in this thread)
This is the Elm that I had been working on....

The tree was collected from a customers hedge and was air layered. I counted the rings as best I could and there were well over 80.

Leaf pruned and ready for wiring

Wired and the placement is almost finished.

The finished front. A fitting time to put a stop to this overly long thread. Dedicated to the memory of a special man indeed.

An Elm called Steve.

Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

I received a message from Steve's brother on my blog and thought I would pass it on. I will put it in announcements as well.

David WhithamJuly 27, 2012 2:50 PM

Many thanks for your kind comments, i'm sure steve would appreciate all your tributes. I am Steve's 'little bro' as he used to call me. I have enjoyed looking into Steve's hobby and passion, and reading his witty blog posts. I would appreciate it if anybody has any photos or anything of any relevance of Steve doing what he loved best, could you please pass them onto me or i'm sure Tony Tickle would be happy to pass them on.

Many Thanks
Dave (proud brother of Harley Rider)

I have to look through my pics and will send you them Will, so you can pass them on.

I met Steve at Burrs, I think he was the only one that understood what I ment by introducing myself as the Belgian psycho that lives in Denmark, my first impression off Steve was like almost all others had, a bad boy, I couldnt have been more wrong, there was hiding a poet behind the badboy look. I did talk quiet a lott with my new friend and at one point we talked about a litle juniper I have, he was very interested, because the tree originated from a graveyard, so I decided to pass it on too Steve.
Allthough the tree was not high end bonsai he was very happy with the tree.

This was one of the memorys that I have from Steve.
I am no religious guy, but I hope Steve is in a good place now.

Your friend The Belgian Psycho.
