The development of olive bonsai from scratch

bonsai general - 20 views



have been working with the stump of a small olive this year. After removing most of the trunk in winter, now I have a lot of buds from which to select new branches. While there is not much that this work is important because it determines the structure for the future of the tree.

as the tree had two trunks, I removed the least interesting of the two and cover the wound with cut and paste. I have no great expectations about the healing of the wound, but will be happy if some of it does. Often large wounds only about bonsai olive growing vigorously when – in other words, when in the ground. I removed the sprouts emerged from the base of the trunk and who grew up near the big cut at the apex. This left a small number of shoots that form the basic branches. I telegraphed adding these curves down and left it.
