Another ‘victim’ of the ground layering technique. A European hornbeam that has taken a long time to thicken up and more girth is still needed for this one. A curling, thick taproot is useless so hopefully in a couple of years time, I’ll see healthy, new surface roots in the bonsai mix the tree has been replanted in.
An overdue repot into a mica training pot. More attractive than the wooden box anyway.
Ground layering a new nebari for this very large maple.
