Wonderful It doing so well , how old is it ? do you trim the roots annually ? I have a pot of Horse Chestnut Bonsia the Conkers were picked up on a walk by our children 40 odd years ago I had 3 in a pot but killed one by trimming its roots too much :o( the 2 remaining ones are still very much with us ....

Thanks Amy ..... I would imagine it is over 20 years old now, we trim the roots every two years, shame you lost one of yours, good job you had two more, safety in numbers lol
Thanks Meadowland..

Lovely Bonsai and love the wiggly trunk. Gerry bends our young Bonsai with bendy plastic wire to get some shape in the trunks.

There was a programme on Japan a few nights ago and it was very interesting to watch. I went to Japan in the early eighties with Gerry, and it wasn't so modernised then as it is now. We went to Tokyo for the first week then travelled on to Toba, Nara, Kyoto and several other out of the way places. We were there for 2 weeks then on to Singapore for a week. They love their Bonsai trees and small gardens and parks and take special care with pattern work in shingle type of stones.
