intereteresting. Thanks. Do you mind if I copy them fr my garden… Robin

no, not at all. When you have them made you need to see if it is easier for the fabricator to have them bend, welded or a combination (the double bend might be an issue for some shop set ups). on mine there a small strips at the bottom to stabilise the rectangle

The bonsai below me is an Olive.


Omg. That’s amazing! I’m in love!
I don’t have an olive so forwarding it:

The bonsai below me is an Olive.

This little dwarf olive in the beginnings of tertiary development. The bonsai below me is a nursery bought juniper cultivar.


This is a Parson’s Juniper that I brought to a class with Tyler Sherrod. Long way to go, but the lines are promising!

The picture below me is an American deciduous in refinement.


My Quercus Suber, 2 years in training…

I love the development, fat trunk, nice root spread. So many posts are of just a plant not a bonsai.

Or any conifer forest… :grinning:

Here’s a Juniper I dug out of the yard. It hardly had any branches on one side of the trunk so I laid it down and made a raft out of it!

Let’s see a Luma apiculata
