Digging Shibui field grown stock

Last weekend we hosted another Shibui field grown tree dig.

A few friends came and helped get the trees dug from the growing beds so I could prune roots and tops then assess them to see which are ready to go into pots for sale and which would be better back in the ground for another season of development. As well as working we had time to assess and refine a couple of trees I have in training. Thanks to Joe and Matt for the help again this year.

I was too busy keeping up with the enthusiastic digging team to take photos but Joe has posted an article on his blog –http://nichigobonsai.com/2012/07/30/shibui-bonsai/

I’ll try to remember to post some pics of the trees as I pot up and replant.
