Hi, I'm pretty new to online forums - I presume there must be a way I can search and see all the entries (images) to the Natural Progression Competition. Can anyone tell me how to do this please? Thanks in advance, Ben

I am trying to post a progression photo, and am having trouble attaching an image. I haven't done this since the forum was updated. I seem to be attaching files, but they don't show up in my preview or post. I would rather not have to use an image hosting site. Any ideas where I am going wrong?
My images were under 500kb; I reduced them to under 400, but still had the same problem.

Hi everyone.

I hope you are all safe and looking after yourselves.
There most important thing is to make sure you’re all getting a full nights sleep to keep your immune system up.

In light of the current events, there is no requirement to update by April 30th 2020.
Of course if you are fighting fit and bored, we’d all love to see what natural beauties you have going, but your health is more important.

Take care everyone.

Please take note of the next update:
31st October 2020

Wow, what a period it has been. No-one would have known we'd be in such a mess across the world.
Remember to get as much sleep as possible and don't let yourselves get run down.
You want to be in the best health you can be at the moment. :fc:

One of my entries has died. :palm: But on the plus side, it means I have less trees to water and less photos to take. :yes:

Please include a clear photo of your tree with each update, preferably with a plain background or something that makes the tree identifiable, like a plain fence or wall.

Please include a brief mention to others what you have done since the last update.
This competition was primarily started for the benefit of everyone to showcase new native material and to show our different methods of attempting to grow native natural-styled bonsai.

The updates required are:

31st October 2020
30th April 2021
31st October 2021 (final update)

Thank you.
