This Larix was collected in Slovenian Mountains around 2008, after many years in development its finally coming to look like a bonsai. The pot is by that fantastic British potted Bryan Albright. Standing approximately 35cm tall (Chuhin) this is my favourite size for bonsai. Some of the earlier images of this tree can be seen HERE
Because I have had such a huge response to a blog post from 4 years ago, I have produced two videos based on the blog post . Original blog post is here
This is a scots pine that has been prepared over a number of years in preparation for a demo. The organisers of The Trophy in Belgium asked me to create something more than simply ‘styling’ as tree. The root ball has been reduced over many years to enable fitting into a small container. the marriage between the tree, stone and presentation was well received. Aftercare is critical, I would never advocate wiring and potting at the same time but the tree is strong and I know what I am doing, I would NEVER sacrifice a tree for the purpose of a demo. Many thanks to my wonderful friend from Argentina Sergio Luciani, he made the event particularly special for me.
