Japanese Box

Post by Watto »

This was started in 2011 in a comp that was run here. Eight years later and it is still going, although it now stands about 22cm tall so the description of shohin could be argued by some.
As there are a few competitions going at the moment I thought it appropriate to show what can be achieved just by having a go in comps.

Thats a nice box. I have a few going at the moment and hopefully they will turn out something like that in a few years.
Cheers

Great little tree Watto.
One of the fabulous things about growing bonsai is as you get old and decrepit your trees get old and beautiful
