      Since then I have watered every day! It has been colder but not frost.

        Finally today I went around and watered most of my trees. The wind we had this week has dried them out rather than high temperatures. I have never gone from October to April not having to water.

          Superb show on Sunday, very busy. Did not buy much, just a nice Larch off the back of a van!

            I re potted the Premna yesterday, the roots were good but it did need to be re potted. Back in the same pot as it is a good combination.IMGP4136aIMGP4137aIMGP4138a

                  Yes, the days are getting a little longer, but now we are getting frosts. More meetings this week and next.

                    Yes it is, but you can bring a pot or two or tools, but no plants.

                        Thanks, I have not finished it yet, with some of the jins to finish but I did not take all that the guy who suggested the re style off, he wanted me to remove all except the branch on the right. I thought that was too much so I kept the other branches, also changed the front.

                              Omya village is big for bonsai nurseries as well. Problem is that you cannot bring plants back with you (unless you want to smuggle) and I am not suggesting you do! Lodders Bonsai in Holland is good for all sizes of trees, but again, a show will give plenty of choice

                                There are lots of good potters around, and some good Chinese pots too. The European Bonsai potters collective (think I got that right) have a lot. Also a show is a good place to find pots. Morten mentioned one last night in the Q&A and in the unwrapping video recently. Ad with most things you get what you pay for, quality costs.
