Hawthorn__

Post  Rui Marques on Fri Dec 16, 2011 10:39 am

Hi all,

This is a small hawthorn that was collected in 2009. The images are from 2010 and since then has been recovering since then, and I am planning to do the transplant in the next growing season.
If you have any ideas who want to share ....

Why are you transplanting? And transplanting into what?

Your hawthorn is little more than a seedling, and will need many years of growing before it can be turned into a bonsai. You should at least leave it alone and let it grow in its current pot for 2-3 years. Better yet, plant it in the garden somewhere and "forget" about it for a few years. Let it grow up.

Hi Rui, If you want to progress with your bonsai it is important that you visit exhibitions to see 'real' bonsai and to gain a positive direction. This seedling that you are showing here will take many years (even with your wonderful climate) to develop into a credible bonsai... it will make a bonsai... eventually.

Regards

Tony
