So windy

At the moment it seems all I do is watering.  This windy weather is really drying out the pots, especially the little shohin and mame bonsai need water up to three times a day.
I am trying to keep my maples (and Hornbeams)sheltered from the wind to prevent leaf burn.
Lets hope for some nice calm sunny days soon.

Chinese Elm Tanuki Update

It's nearly a year now since I started this little tanuki from a cutting.  The video shows how the tree is doing and gives an outline to further development.

Bonsai Stolen in the Yorkshire Area

Bonsai stolen in the Yorkshire area. Please follow the link below to the Internet Bonsai Club for further details. Giving exposure such as this makes these trees much harder to move. Please … if anyone thinks they may be able to help recover them, contact the owner (details on linked thread).
Please clickHERE
Please do consider getting your Bonsai security chipped. I realise this does not prevent them being stolen but does make identification easier.
