some new project in my collection. It is dwarf elm -“Jacqueline Hill” variety. I think it has lot of potential to be nice shohin size tree in short future. We will see 🙂
It is grafted to some sort of elm stick and need to be air-lay next season.
the graft was made so badly that will become some nice trunk base in the future tree.
I had some busy bank holiday weekend.

This tree has got to my collection in September 2014 from Phill Donnelly at Leinster Bonsai workshop. It is well established tree.
Lovely tree. Lots of potential , lot of options. But this is what we made….
It will get new pot in spring and then I will work on ramification
This tree has got to my collection from Phill Donnelly- NIBS in September 2014 and I love it so much
Probably front best trunk movement only one issue there are two apex. I need decide which one is going to be the best for this tree
This little Grey Alder has got to my collection in February 2012. I collected it of hedge and left in pot for two seasons growing freely.
as collected. Nothing special, straight stick, typical beginners mistake 🙂
This year I decided it is time to give it some shape. Here are some pictures showing the proces
tree growing strong after spring pruning
Nebari with big wounds
and the same problem at the half way of trunk
wound open to promote heeling
and sealed with hard past
trunk wound open to promote heeling
and the final product.
I think it has got better movement and trunk taper. It will bee re-potted next spring to sort out rots, also will work on ramification.
Any critique are very welcome .
