I’ve been experimenting with natives for quite a few years now. In the last few I’ve tried speeding up the process by trialling a few species in the grow beds and the results are starting to come onto the sales benches.
This year I have a few Banksia integrifolia trunks ready for you to take to the next level.
All these banksias have been in the pots for just on 12 months. Please have a look and see if any of these look like the right tree for your next Aussie native bonsai adventure.
After a couple of tries I’ve finally managed to get photos of the new Shibui Bonsai field grown trees. Surgery on my right hand has curtailed other activities so I’ve also managed to format them into new catalogues.
Chinese elms 2018
Root over Rock 2018
Trident maples 2018
Japanese Maples 2018
Many of the tridents look a bit sad in these catalogues. Pictures were taken straight after their first trim for the season so they do look quite bare. I will try to update the photos as they bud up but, in the meantime, feel free to ask for new photos so you can check that the trees you are interested in really are healthy.
As usual, email neil@shibuibonsai with the catalogue description and numbers to check that the trees are still available and to discuss delivery costs. I’m more than happy to send extra photos if you would like to have a look at any trees from other angles.
