I have always loved Bonsai but know how difficult it is to keep these ready make trees. I have two sycamore trees that are about two years old and having read on the internet that they can get very large and messy, covered in aphids but beneficial to blue tits for the insects, I have decided not to terrified of them growing like triffids. They were mine from seedlings so I feel I know them and have authority to do with them what I wish. At the moment they are twigs but I’ve found a beginners bonsai site. On Monday I shall be performing my first operation on both of them; cut their roots and nip out the tops (to encourage branch growth). I think I should have done that by now but I’m sure it’s not too late. After that I’m not really sure what to do. The very first thing is to take photographs of how they are now. I shall either put them back into their pots or find some other container. I would like them fairly large so that at least one blue tit might find a home! I only like to learn the bare necessities as I like to be creative and independent with my ideas.
I have just been out in the dark to take my picture so it isn’t the best. If I can change it I will do that later on in the week. You will need to scroll down the picture to see the smaller tree.
