Been doing my introduction to bonsai course today.
Had a really great day learning about compost, re-potting and controlling tree growth with wires. It was good to end up with muck under the finger nails.
The worst bit was the extreme privet trimming, going from this:
Arrrgggggggg! I hope it grows back, which the bonsai gurus assure me that it will.
I also acquired a new Serissa tree to accompany the Chinese Elm I got for Xmas. Both have been repotted and ready to flourish in spring.
Part two of the course scheduled and already booked. I can’t wait.
