Old Joe Yew

Bonsai Eejit

This tree is with me until the end of either it or me 🙂 Perhaps not the best material in the world but I have a sentimental attachment to this tree due to it’s provenance. You can catch up with that here along with other links. 

As I’m keeping it, I decided it was time for a better pot. I have recently acquired this Walsall Ceramic pot which I think adds to the negative space required to emphasise the height of the tree. It’s a glazed pot but subtle which I like for this tree. I under planted a few small Japanese Ferns to help hide a few issues and also emphasise the height of the tree.

Japanese Larch

Bonsai Baker

I’m having difficulty getting access to my computer at the moment hence the slow down in posting. I’ve asked Ian to post a few images of my Larch that we styled today to keep you updated.
