bonsai general - 15 views
In recent years, I’ve been refining a Yaupon holly with a view to display it in an upcoming exhibition Bay Island Bonsai. It is now one of my best candidates for our next exhibition 15th anniversary.
Yaupon holly – front
work at this stage is to leave that new outbreaks run for a while and then cut back to within the desired shape. Progress is subtle, but necessary if I am to create pads branch with good definition.
Front – after
Right side – after
Of course, pads branch well defined They are still a long way off. Meanwhile, I will keep repeating the crop / cut the routine and see how the tree looks this winter.
