This spectacular Bonsai Features an extremely large and extended First Branch, a style very popular in Japanese Culture. It has been wired, re-wired and wired again, often with heavy anchors, to achieve its current shape and balance.
Some light wires do remain to train the vigorous new growth of this summer. Although this species is considered slow growing, its Spring fertilising (Japanese Bio Gold) has produced a flourish of new green foliage that has been continually pinched to maintain the silhouette.
The Juniper Shimpaku is one of the more popular Bonsai Species. The tree can be easily kept in shape using a pair of sharp bonsai scissors, and new growth can easily be picked out with your fingertips. This tree will enjoy daily watering and a sunny position, perfect for balconies or patios with direct morning sun. The tree can also be placed in a dish of water if you go away for a few days, so the roots don’t dry out.
