Follow the Bonsai seasons

A monthly story from the bonsai garden or elsewhere, where you can follow the four seasons of bonsai. 

Bonsai seasons 12. Autumn sets through with bright yellow and red coloured maple leaves. Morten Albek looks in to the caretaking of Shohin and preparing them for the dormant season. A Shohin Yew is pinched to develop new growth, and detailed explanations of controlling growth and energy is part of this November edition of the seasonal report from the bonsai garden.


Vlog 11.October shows the beginning signs of autumn where deciduous shifts from green to yellow, brown or red leaves.Removing the wire from a bonsai in training, should not be made in one go, but in steps. Finally I arrange a Kusamono planting with dry tolerant grasses and plants.


Vlog 10. Slowly the trees are preparing for the dormancy season. Correcting foliage at a Shimpaku Mame bonsai, and finishing with a bonsai social meeting. Enjoy the September edition of the vlog.
