Lonicera nitida

Post  jamesransom on Mon Mar 02, 2009 10:33 pm

Hi Paul
Thanks for the comments it is the hedging honeysuckle Lonicera nitida. This tree i got as untrained material from a well known bonsai master, potter and sculpter some years back about 10 or more. I also purchased a pine collected by another bonsai person which i will show below, this too was untrained and in a massive training pot.
The Larch i purchaced (along with some other material) when i competed in the bonsai new tallent competition in 1999 and has been an interesting plant to work on.

My Pinus syl. after a repot and root work.

This is a picture about a week ago of Toms Azalea from our club. It was purchased as untrained material from a uk nursery i helped Tom train it it has taken about 7 or 8 years and has been in this pot the last 4 years. Tom leaves the tree in my care and i plan to repot and wire it after this years flowering.

Very nice close-ups!

Great trees, too! I really like some of those trunks. Most pictures don't do a lot of trunks justice, but yours are good.

Pictures

Hi Kirby2
Thanks for the nice comments the pictures were luck i think but one thing good about this IBC is you end up taking pictures of your trees! That was one of my weakest points so some trees i have done i dont have pictures of each stage of development.
