Well another late finish tonight as we tried to get the Larch group finished and styled.

Boxy and I started a bit early with adding wire.



As people arrived they also gave a hand to wire.


Ken M brought his cork bark Chinese Elm to see if he had got rid of the scale insect that had attacked it


A good time to show new boy Kevin what to look for and how to treat it.


No photos of me tweaking, but here are a couple of the tree so far.


Not the best pics but it was getting dark.


I will post a better one tomorrow when it is light.

This is a small job we will attempt to get done tomorrow  at my Natter Night. This Larch group will be wired and maybe styled, if we get that far.
----------------------------------------------------------


Look out for my post tomorrow.

One of the best night's we have had for a while, the banter was great and everyone got stuck in to wire a big Larch group.
--------------------------------------------------


Boxy and I started by removing a lot of unwanted branches.


Graham and Kevin also got to work and added a good bit of wire.



Nice to see Ken M back in the garden once more.


A night of group plantings, this one is Ken's, which had a bit of a trim.



Kevin and I took time out to look around my trees.


The Larch group after we had finished for the night.


Many hands make light work,

Thanks to all who helped.

I have been thinking again, [ doesn't happen very often ] I am starting a new post of a tree of the week and here is the first one.

Semi cascade Chinese Juniper in a very nice Ian Baillie pot.

It was a quiet night, but we did welcome a newbie, Kevin made his first visit to see what goes on here at Ronin Bonsai on a Monday night.
-----------------------------------------

I did manage to get rid of a lot of the weeds that had grown while I was away, so the garden looked quite tidy.


As did my trees.


Graham brought this Chinese Juniper to work on, which he and Boxy wired.


Nice job lads.


Meanwhile I showed Kevin how to clean out this Hinoki ready to be given it's first styling.


Quite a nice trunkline, but still a lot of work to be done.


I hope Kevin enjoyed the night as much as we did and gained a little extra knowledge about our obsession with small trees.

This time last week I was away in Portugal, but on returning I find my trees have put on a lot of new growth, which will take a while to trim.
------------------------------------------------------

My Hawthorn is a perfect example of the new growth.


After a trim and a cleaning of the pot.


This Yew and Cotoneaster were also trimmed.


This Berberis was cleaned and trimmed on the 13th of June but was done again today.


When you see your trees every day you do not realise how much they grow, but when you have not seen them for a couple of weeks it shows very much.

I picked up a couple of nice Hinoki Cypress yesterday, raw stock but something nice to play with.
-----------------------------------------------


Looking forward to finding the trees in here.
