UK Pine styled as...er... UK Pine.

Post  Guest on Fri Apr 15, 2011 8:03 pm

Spent the afternoon messing around with a relatively boring forest Scots Pine. After the last Pine I posted, I thought I'd have another go at creating a Pine from our landscape. The tree was wired to the start of the needles and wasn't plucked as I want good strength for further back budding. The more needles left on the branch, the stronger the candles. This was a structural wiring and not a refined placement. Eventually I would like two umbrellas of foliage, the lower on the right side.

Relatively happy with the result and sure I will be treaking tomorrow morning. Some branches will be jinned when set. I need a larger backdrop too.

Stand further away? I feel a Father Ted sketch coming on.

Nice afternoon's work, Will. A lot of potential in that.


btw B&Q up our way are selling roller blinds at 20% off (the price - not the length!). All sizes and colours, and they also have a type that is a black-out blind which apparently deadens flash if you need to use it. I am heading over tomorrow to get a couple with a view to attaching the mountings to the fence at the side of our patio so I can have a photo area near the trees and in decent light for most of the day.

Hello Kenbu.? The base branch at the back has been moved slightly and the front is a little more to the left.

Instead of a bigger backdrop, how about smaller trees? If you decide to go that route you can always pass this yummy pine over to me Dance

Hi Will

Lovely looking pine. Fantastic natural look.

I was wondering, where did you get you hands on such a lovely tree. I'm seeking such a tree for my own collection but haven't managed to get hold of anything as yet.
Collection in our local forests were knocked back because of a desease spreading through larch and such.

Cheers

Fantastic Will.
My love of the Pines in the UK landscape was one of the reasons I 1st got into Bonsai.Having never seen a pine styled to like them this is both refreshing and inspirational.
Thanks Will. thumbs up

Great job Will, refreshing to see one that actually looks like a Scotties looks in Nature (in the UK at least)
Do you use a strimmer for the grass and dandelions jocolor

Hello Bryan. Can't really help you out as far as getting reasonable Pine material. You could try Chris and the Dragon bonsai crew as they seem to get hold of some good ones.

Thanks Ian. I left the grass on purpose as I know a couple of people who see red with weeds in pots but no response so far.

Hi Will,

That was some remarkable transformation. Still trying to figure out the connect between the before and after pics... It's that good Very Happy I am glad to see that you did not hesitate to bend the lowest branch which was initially growing to the right in the opposite direction. Purists would shun this move and say things like crossing the trunk and blah blah blah, but I have done stuff like this on quiet a few of my trees.. Keep at it. The overall design is very convincing and looks like the highland pines at Scotland.

Thankyou Yvonne and Ravi. So glad you like it. It's quite difficult to wire branches in a more upward direction when your more used to wiring downwards.

Heres a big scots i have - similar to yours in size. Ive just got it out of the soil it was collected in which had set like concrete and was waterproof. I decided that after a big traumatic repot i wouldnt work it too hard so there is only some light structural wiring - and a few very offensive crossing branches were also snipped. It has rewarded me with massive evenly distributed growth - i did remove quite a lot of buds.

It seems that the bavarian method of loads of water and fertiliser in innert substrate is apreciated.

i bought this one at the BTA show last year. not seen one like it in england. iirc it had come from norfolk.

Hi Will

It feels kind of foolish to chime in and echo what has been said so many times already...But I too like the natural appearence of the canopy. I wonder whattype of pot it's going into eventually?

best regards from
