Cork Bark Maple Progression

Not much to do on the bonsai front this month, so i spent some time organising the photos on my computer and found some early shots of some of my trees.

I thought it may be good for some to see the progression over a number of years.

First up my Cork Bark Maple.  This was started from a cutting back in 1988 (if I remember rightly).  It is not as vigorous as a grafted maple and seems to grow very slowly.

It was grown in a large plant pot and then planted into its first bonsai pot in 1999.
