It is Autumn here at Shibui Bonsai. There is also a partial business shutdown response to COVID 19 virus pandemic so I’m doing my bit by not going out too much. That allows me to get on with some of the autumn bonsai tasks like needle pulling and reducing the new shoots on some pines.
For those who are new to pines as bonsai there are some specific strategies to control the growth that differ from most other species.
My local club is Albury Wodonga Bonsai Society. For a few years now we have put on a non competitive display of our trees at the Wodonga show held in March each year. It is a good opportunity to show what we do and lift the profile of bonsai in our community.
The top of one of my shimpaku junipers got more and more pale over the past month or so. I was pretty sure there was nothing I could do to halt this. Once a juniper starts to change colour like this it is way too late to reverse the problem so I just watched and waited to see what would happen.
After a number of failed attempts to upload some new catalogs I’ve managed to get them onto the catalog page and actually work – Yay!
Just go to the catalog page and click on the blue links to see what Shibui Bonsai has available this season.
As usual, please be aware that some of the trees featured in the catalogs will already have been sold. I’ll attempt to update the files whenever I can but the reality is they will usually be way behind the actual stock. Thank you for your patience.
