Just an update - have chopped off some of the uneccessary bits and wired a little. Planning to feed and water for a while now. The deadwood will be carved down the track.

Update - had wired this at our club workshop meeting at the beginning of this month but the wire had already started to dig in. I like this one the most out of the 3 entries.

Finally got around to doing a bit of work on this one on a showery day. I have turned it around to make the deadwood a feature at the front, rather than hiding it at the back. I have done an initial carve on it playing with my new Dremel. I didn't think it had progressed much until I looked back at the initial photo.

Not much happening - my plan is to grow this on as much as possible and then put into a bonsai pot around August.

Just have been letting this grow on at the moment. Once the weather gets a bit warmer I will pot it into a bonsai pot and get serious with it. I think this has the most potential out of my 3 entries.

Hell no - I would never use DL on a repotted tree. It's Seamungus which is totally safe to use on bare rooted trees. I now use it in the mix in the root zone as well with good results :tu:
