Propagation update Maples

Over the last couple of years I have shifted focus from large bonsai towards smaller trees (shohin) and in an effort to obtain suitable material I have started to propagate my own trees both from cuttings and seed.

Below are some pictures of my current crop.

These maples will be left to grow a little more this year and then cut back to the lowest branches for further development
