News from Sakura Bonsai Gallery

I hope to find the time to add some news on cleaning up my neglected collection.

Old Kuromatsu Stock - first styling

Japanese Black Pine - structural development

Last month I featured this and one other Kuromatsu that I acquired on my last trip to Sydney.  This is the first time in more than 40 years that I have aquired large stock like this; and I was very keen to start their transformation.

 Still a lot of development work ahead of this one.  There are parts of the tree that can be refined this season.

Japanese Black Pine branches can be bent to very acute angles.  With the combination of branch 'v-cuts', thick copper wire, and 'guy wires', I can eliminate the need for raffia wrapping and other cumbersome techniques.
