cotoneaster bonsai

December 2013: My big 30"/77cm tall Cotoneaster franchetti, newly pruned for the Winter. It had a disappointing number of berries compared to previous years, but I was still very pleased with the branch structure that I'd been building since I collected the tree in 2005.

privet bonsai

December 2013: With the bonsai having become dormant for the Winter, I started defoliating my favourite Privet bonsai........... however, the leaves had become so small it took 3 hours just to clear the back branches!
