Hollow Trunk Hawthorn

I cheekily labeled this tree the best Hawthorn ever (that I have dug) some years ago and over time I have not altered my opinion. It is of course still a work in progress and there is a lot still to be done but it is on the way to becoming a presentable bonsai.

In November 2019 I had the enjoyable pleasure of attending a workshop with Peter Warren and with his assistance we set this tree on its path. The best feature of this tree is the hollow trunk and with Peters expertise we commenced the process of framing this aspect. At leaf fall this year more work will be done to continue this framing process to enhance this feature. Some more refinement of the foliage pads and compaction of the branches and then hopefully some increase in the flowering then all that is left is a new pot to match the beauty of the trunk.

When all that is done I might be able to exhibit it in a show somewhere, fingers crossed.
