Shohin conifers were order of the day
Scots pine cascade, a little bit of wiring with our super soft 0.8mm copper soon had it in shape. Lovely tree, very shallow compact root ball, 23cm height from apex to bottom of cascade - Sold already
Curly raw material Itoigawa junipers from Japan - these make superb shohin junipers and are great for workshops, practice, for wiring by the TV etc. Purchased from the safety of our ebay store they are £85.00, directly from us £70.00. I've cleaned up 2 for now but have some more.
Here is another similar tree but chunkier, next size up type of thing
Listed on ebay it costs £95.00, buying direct £80.00
Then we have three really good junipers - all are itoigawa, multi trunk clump style trees with compact mature foliage (made in Japan from air layering branches from old mature bonsai)
Once these little babies are wired out and layered a bit you will have a brilliant little mature shohin bonsai - all three are 16-17cm tall and 22-23cm wide. Directly from us they are £120 each
Tucked in with the Junipers was a great little dwarf Japanese Black Pine, I love it when that happens ! £115.00
Above tree just sold, but nice to see it anyway
We now have 20-25 pieces of raw collected and field grown part trained material here. One by one I'll style them and add them to the bonsai stock for sale but a few can be offered as material in case anyone wants project or workshop trees. Here is a spruce, wild, quite aged, very compact from grazing and completely settled from collection - ready to style, £100.00
This is a tidy cork bark elm - 20cm tall, excellent variety with the dark green leaves, compact shoots etc. Great trunk size on such a short tree - rough pruned branch structure ready to be refined more to make a really high quality shohin cork bark elm. I bought this tree to keep.......but you cant think that with every tree you spot £85.00 bought direct.
With so many tempting trees I needed to bring payment methods up to date so now we are taking credit and debit cards - our service is fully mobile so we can process payments here in the garden, at shows, when delivering trees, when meeting in car parks etc
and now some tunes for my favorite readers
More treats to follow soon
Wow - that was quick - the man is a bonsai machine............
29" tall san hose juniper - wire free at the moment, ready for work -a nice inexpensive juniper with really shallow root ball, very very healthy foliage, nice carved shari, aged and dried out
Bargain piece of material - collected from the garden £180 gets it
And a similar juniper but different species - 26" tall, just as shallow a root ball, equally nice carved shari
you know when you have a workshop session booked with a bonsai professional and you get the wicked thought pop into your head - I wonder what I've got that will really challenge him ? ........but it must have a bit of potential so you go home with a reasonable tree at the end of the day ............THIS IS THAT TREE! £145.00 for a very reasonable material juniper
