Welcome to you, your garden is fantastic. I would love to see more shots of individual trees. The spiral is impressive (can't tell what kind of tree it is) specially when you see the scale of it in the wider shot of the whole garden. Glad to have you here.

The spiral just blows my gizzard. I see work like this and am encouraged and intimidated at the same time. Seeing what can be done inspres us to reach further into what we maybe could do ourselves. Welcome!

Thanks to everyone, Sorry for the poor picture quality. I didn't have any helper to assist me in photography, but I'll try to post a better one next time. Hopefully, with the warm welcome and appreciation I got from all of you, I expect to learn more from this shared Bonsai knowledge site with the unselfish act of all of its members. Below is the south side of my garden, the topiaries at the back of the Bonsais on monkey poles are Strebus Aspers that are very common in our place.

To Jun: I'm residing here in Batangas City, about 120 Km south of Manila but due to the nature of my job in Oil and Gas in the Middle east; I only tend to my plants every other month as I am on 4 weeks on and 4 weeks off rotation.
Regards,
Jolz

Streblus asper (kalyos) is a very good material for bonsai, you are right this material is abundant in Batangas, I got my materials from Talisay Bats. Kalyos is excellent for forest or group planting.

Very interesting garden.

The row of smaller bonsai on top of the two round pipes caught my eye, specifically the two round pipes. Interesting concept for displaying bonsai. Was there a special reason for the round pipes instead of a flat shelf? Do the tree stay on the pipes firmly? (Since you are in oil and gas industry, maybe you like seeing pipes around Laughing Laughing )

Your trees are very nice, like the rest of the people look forward to seeing more of them up close.

Rob : The pipes has no significance at all. I just utilized them as they were discarded GRP (glass reinforced epoxy pipes) or fiber glass pipes normally used for sea cooling water in industrial plants. They never rot or corrode.

Arno: The second picture is what we locally call Aroma or Acasia Farnesiana. This specie is not normally used as bonsai material as this is a very fast growing but medium tree. They are hardwood when aged and abundant in muddy seashore. Its branches are coupled with torns that are very sharp. The one that I'm training for Bonsai is about 40 - 50 years old in the wild, and I have been training this for about a year now.(expiremental) The spiral or coiled tree was is locally known as Lagundi or Vitex Negundo. This is a medicinal plant, proven to cure symptoms from cough.(I actually chewed some raw young leaves everytime I got an itchy throat and it works) This is very easy to propagate through cuttings but in the wild, they grow from seeds out of bird's droppings.

Regards,
Jolz
