Hi here’s a few of mine
Port Jackson collected in the late sixties
Image
A Little Ruby I picked up last year, deceased estate, Cambewarra Bonsai. Chopped 90%, wired and potted, root over rock.
Image
Queensland small leaf Fig, had it for a long time, exsposed root, a bit quirky
Image
Ficus obliqua another one from the sixties, major chop last year, one year of development, I really like the trunk.
Image
Another Queensland small leaf shonin stands at 180mm, great ramification for 2 Years development
Image

Thanks
Tim

sooo....here are a few of my figs...lol. Most need pruning, none of them qualify as bonsai, but they keep me busy.

Thanks guys. They're still a long way from being anything special, but they're lots of fun. @Pierre you really should get some Willow leaf figs, they would thrive in your yard! (Could be too much work though...so that should be kept in mind.) :(
