Bonsai…

 

When most people think of Bonsai, they see the ones that win medals, every branch and leaf in just the right position, but this is the end result when it comes to growing Bonsai.

Reaching perfection can take years, hundreds of years in some cases because you are dealing with a living thing and results are not always desirable.

I was checking mine the other day and noticed that the moss that grows around most of my trees needed trimming. Some enthusiasts prefer not to use moss, keeping the image neat and tidy with fine gravel instead.

I like the mosses, for apart from being pretty, I find they keep the soil moist, especially in warm weather. What do you think?

I spotted this image the other day, of a fuchsia trained as a Bonsai. I rather like the flowering Bonsai, and this fuchsia is just one of our garden flowers that find themselves in a Bonsai pot.

My absolute favourite are the Japanese azaleas and have seen several different coloured flowers on one plant.

Then there is the wisteria, although how they manage to keep these small and in flower is a miracle…
