      The show was very good. They had a problem with the lights so in places the light was poor, but the trees were excellent. I collected a pot made for me for the small hawthorn I got last year, I am going to re pot next weekend.

      It was very busy from the start, it is a pity they cannot find a bigger hall! It was good to meet Graham Walker as well. He also had a tree in.

        Also vicious I was stabbed a few times until I had cut the thorns off.

          it is, I have had this tree flower anytime from January to March. I took it indoors to try to force it but should have taken it in two days earlier. We have a meeting in two weeks so it might be still in flower, fingers crossed.

            But you must remember that it is only mid February and still winter! It can change in a day, we are a way off spring yet.

              Yes, it has been a nice day, sunny afternoon, I am doing a re pot on Thursday at club workshop, so I will miss the live stream again,  but I can watch it Friday instead. Then the following Saturday, 25th I will do some more re potting at our workshop.

                Reaching over to get the ones at the back!  I went around with the hose today did them all. We have no rain for at least three weeks, and it was up to 12C today and sunny.

                  Ok, David, well I am going to start re potting soon, I am in the south, north Dorset it is mild at the moment but can still get cold. I am going to leave the ones under cover for a few more weeks yet. Problem is I am having to water more and they are packed in close together.

                    I always put mine on the ground, out of the wind as well as warmer that up. I put my smaller trees and some others like Trident and Olive under open cover.

                    It does depend also on where you are in Britain as there is a big difference south to north.

                      There was a really good shohin I think it was a Trdent which started at more than I had in my pocket and went on to finish at £420 I would have been tempted if I had the cash with me.

                        Yes, it was so mild for about ten days, tonight could be a frost, but tomorrow night will be. I am going to cover up with fleece.

                          Yes, lot of covid after though, not me. I am looking forward to the Bonsai Live show in Telford too, going for both days,

                                It has been raining, but it varies with where it comes. Some is very heavy and causing flooding, but we have not had much here. I did not have to rain yesterday, but I will have to today. I did re pot one of my Scots Pines today, and I will do another one tomorrow.

                                  Yes, I have a water butt, but it only lasts for about two days, so I am back to the hose. There is the possibility of rain today or tomorrow, but the ground is very dry and it will need weeks of rain to recover.
