    DIY Bonsai

    i've been training the pine for a couple of years,
    but they have only been in training pots this spring.

    i'm not really into small 6" tall bonsai,
    i like the big bonsai and have been using garden centre plant material, or acers i had grown on in pots to try and get there a bit quicker .
    don't know how well they will turn out over the years but i wouldn't pay 1000's for a mature bonsai tree....

    i haven't done a lot of pruning with the acers,
    had to chop a lot of roots away to get them in the training pots.
    so want them to develop a new rootball
    i'll do a prune next spring just before leaf out.
