the BOSS! cyprus (spell check)

this is the daddy of all my bonsai lol ... been field growing this for about 10 years (hense the scruffy look but amazing trunk) ... will refine the look of this over the coming years, but already you can see it's potential ... dug it up this year to do garden landscaping (in a training pot)

Such a wonderful specimen considering its age...the trunk has developed such beautful characteristics...

Thank you :O)

I don't know it's correct age! (short of cutting the thing in half) ...... but it would have probably been about 10 years when I first started field growing it!

so from sapling i'll give it an age of 20-30 years old .........

I really need to find a potter though!!!! lol

yes it was a bit of an emergency planting to be honest lol ... next couple of years and get it in a good pot :O)

thanks for the comments
