Aarrrhhh..i dont believe it :lost: I had been doing trees all day when i decided to work on the comp tree. When i finished and looked at it i realized i had been brain dead :palm: and had created a McBonsai. I do think i can save it with refinement but..bloody hell..oh well, move forward. :fc: Lovely Japanese pot though.

Hi Bodhi

Any chance of getting a top down view of this tree? Lovely movement there hidden amongst the foliage.

Cheers

The tree has been a surprise packet and has powered on like it has not had anything done to it. I have already started its tip pruning and it is responding well.

This tree is going gangbusters and is being finger pruned constantly. Time for secondary selections.

Wow,

that's a lovely tree. Gives me some inspiration and ideas for sure.
Do you intend wiring the smaller branchlets?
where do you see the tree going from here?

thanks for sharing.

Thanks Ado, i will now start to wire out the smaller branching off the main branches. I will keep on with finger pruning the foliage and try to get a denser foliage cover.
