@wceagles81 The trees like this. All in life does better with discipline and training. The mind, most of all.

cliffcox66 said...

My name is Granville and I have studied shohin under Bill Brieten and David Goscinski in a lineage going back to yuji yoshimura in fact my first workshop was with Yugi in NJ. Your the real deal your trees you use wire and hard cuts they have style and not just brooms! I had a larch just like that that I was training in my garden and lost it when I had to sel my house in the winter )-: your work with dead wood great!

You do some great work. I hope in time, I can do the same.

Awesome work. There seems to be a lot of good artists in England, Scotland Ireland... I'm here in Raleigh NC. I've been training for about six years now, every year my collection grows. I always say, I'll sell these and reduce my stock... It's easier said than done! The trees become priceless to the curator...

josuetepozan81 said...

Hello , what kind of soil did you put ? And did you put a mesh or something when you tied the tree? Thank you very informative for us beginners.

I just got a bonsai tree for my birthday... I have no ideas what to do with it :D but I am willing to learn

XxEmoSnowdayxX said...

I am unimaginably bored and my dad is away for a whole week.

While i was eating an apple I got the idea of growing my own bonsai tree, so, would it work with an apple tree? And do I HAVE to grow it them re-plant it or can I plant it in good then shape it as it's growing?
