Kishu Juniper

Post  F. Waheedy on Thu Dec 31, 2009 7:11 pm

Hello Everyone,

Here I'd like to show my Kishu Juniper which I bought last summer. I decided to take it to BURRS and in just a few hours the tree was completely transformed. Thank you Tony. I will be re-potting it this spring into one of Andy's beautiful round pot.

I'm very happy with the result. Hope you like it too.

Regards,

Faisal

Nice transformation! I wouldn't mind your/Tony's thoughts toward the large reduction though.

Faisal wanted a powerful 'little' tree. When the material was first presented, the 'interesting' deadwood was far removed from the foliage. Working on the 'Make the smallest tree possible' principal this design was arrived at... the foliage pads need to mature of course, and lots of fine wiring must take place. The basic design was created at Burrs and Faisal was to wire the rest when the foliage filled out.

Will is correct in the planting 'angle' needs to change from the photo presented.

Whilst on the subject of 'Make the smallest tree possible' Enrico, Ivo and I discussed a few trees in my garden and some 'Radical' changes to a couple of mature Yews will take place mid Spring 2010.... watch this space bounce

Thanks Tony. I saw something else but, then again perhaps a different perspective would have come to mind if I saw it in person as was. Looking forward to see your transformations, along with the blow by blow for why. The latter is the instructional part Very Happy

There is the Less is More approach, which makes sense in various situations; but why always make the smallest tree possible?
To me doesnt make sense with all material, especially if the tree ends up with an ugly set of loopy bends at the top that dont look anywhere near natural.
Just a thought

Hi Nick you are spot on... lots of twists simply to get the smallest tree is way out of the ballpark. That 'way' of styling should and has been consigned to the waste bin. Many years later I have had to re-work some of my trees that were 'corkscrewed' by 'old school' artists during workshops I took with them... sets you back years Rolling Eyes

Trees like this should go on a longer term horizion and grafting used to move foliage lower. There is no such thing as an instant bonsai. Shocked
