Kagawa BONSAI on Instagram: “不思議な盆栽。 Mysterious bonsai. . The bonsai you acquired the other day. . You have a nice trunk. I am looking forward to seeing how to arrange…”

First work on a Yamadori Yew ‘Pagoda’ style

Bonsai & Yamadori from Tony Tickle

Its always exciting when you tackle a piece of raw material for the first time, the element of discovery (and sometimes disappointment) seeing the image that you have in your head appear before your eyes is great.

This tree was collected over 4 years ago, this is a tall thin English Yew (Taxus Baccata), it has a shari that runs from top to base. Its never been re-potted out of this washing up bowl and it is now ready. The first work is not actually styling but formulating the branch structure and foliage locations. No wiring, no styling no branch positioning, the tree will be left to grow. All I will do over the next 12 months is clean the tree and tidy up the cuts.
