I finally have a Bonsai

Post  Bonsai Jay on Sun Mar 06, 2016 5:20 pm

I bought myself a beautiful 20-25cm Chinese Elm Bonsai from Cat & Darren at Bonsai By Design.
For first time buyers like myself I highly recommend checking them out for yourself I love you .
I was worried at first, Question having thoughts on how does one wrap and package then box a tiny wee tree to post the other end of the country. It was perfect, probably favored being all cozied up in a cocoon than the chilly bite of our Scottish weather lol santa
I haven't worked out the pics posting thing, but I will get one of Miyagi here soon! lol!

Hi Kevin...
I cant argue with that logic Laughing
When you're right, you're right

On another note, do you name your Bonsai? Or is it wierd?
As not only named my Chinese Elm, Ive gone and named each of the 90 seeds I labled & planted as well!
I was bored one night Razz

jay - according to my logic, your name should now be "jay with bonsai" !!! Laughing

welcome to the IBC and glad to see you have a sense of humour !!! (see how i spelled that !)

re: naming trees... i only name special ones that have actually become something.
i think i would be even more heartbroken had i named the ones i killed,
or the ones that, more tragically, committed suicide... those poor mixed up kids Sad

I ... left him at my mums last week, that was the delay - I attempted to hide that I forgot him, as it doesn't give the impression of being committed to Bonsai leaving him behind the first time I take him with me overnight lol
Lets call it his Easter holidays, and brush the forgetting under the rug as if I was a politician Twisted Evil
