Big Bonsai

Bonsai Eejit

I popped over to a friends house on Saturday with a view to helping him select a tree for entering in Bonsai Europa next Autumn. It was nice to see some of these trees for the first time in Winter image.

This Beech is a monster.

This Acer Campestre or Field Maple isn’t much smaller.

And a little smaller again, this Ulmus Glabra or Wych Elm. Hard to see with the poor backdrop but again, you get the idea.



And last but not least is a Hazel, it’s covered in Catkins for next Spring and even produced 6 Hazelnuts this year past.

Tree selected and plans made. Josh in one of the nicest bonsai people I know but then the rest of us are all oddballs 🙂

One thought on “Big Bonsai

  1. Wow! Beautiful. The beech recalls to mind the huge specimens around my hometown (none where I live now). And I especially appreciate the hazel: I planted two seedlings in my yard at summer solstice this year.
