A bonsai horse chestnut tree New buds

It’s been a while (actually, almost a decade!) since I last posted about my bonsai horse chestnut tree. Amazingly, after 32 years, it’s still alive! — I must be doing something right.

The tree’s had a new pot in the interim. This one is about twice the size of its previous home. As a result, the roots have spread out and the tree itself has grown, too. It’s now about three feet high, which is taller than I wanted it to be, but I’ve never been able to really control it other than by restricting its roots (I don’t know all that much about how to tend bonsai).

It really should be repotted about now (I think). Maybe I’ll get a round tuit.

As you can see from the buds, spring is almost here, thank goodness!
