Today has been the hottest day of the year so far, in fact it almost felt like Spring was on the way. I remember thinking that this time last year just before the temperatures plummeted and we went into the coldest Spring since records began. Ever the optimist, I decided that now is the time to begin the new seasons’ repotting. If I’ve miss-timed this I can always invest in a portable heater for the greenhouse. The first to be dealt with are 3 hawthorns They were collected from the hedge which surrounds my garden and have been in training as shohin bonsai for about 4 years.
This little group are beginning to show some promise and will make nice shohin trees in a few years time.
