KINGSVILLE BOX REPOTTED

Post  mike page on Sun Sep 11, 2011 10:39 pm

I repotted this old Kingsville Boxwood today. The pot started out life as some kind of dish or bowl. I drilled drainage and tie down holes in it using diamond core drills. Height including pot is about 10 inches.

nice work mike. new to this site. would like to get ideas on styling kings ville boxwood. roughly 25 years ago i purchased from you at the golden-state convention in south San Fransisco a flat which have been field growing and dug up last year.i live up in the northern California foothills (paradise)and thought styling like the native oaks would look good.

Hi Bruce
I'm very happy that your Kingsvilles are doing well.
Regarding stying, I believe that the California Oak style is the way to go. Most of mine are done that way. Occasionally I like to go the bunjin route, as that's my favorite bonsai style.
Keep up the good work! Very Happy

Thanks, Mike...just wanted to share one of my two kingsville's (thanks to Dale Cochoy)....this one stands 9 inches from the pot rim....sorry for the image softness (= a bit out of focus)....I am still trying to get used to a new camera.

Regards,
Tom

Looking good! I can easily imagine your Kingsville on a Northern California oak covered hillside.

When I see pics of kingsville boxwood bonsai in books they don't look that much like bonsai to me, but when I actually see them in person they always look impressive. Its because the leaves are sooooo small in person, whereas I just have my normal boxwood to look at and its not impressive at all.
