Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced.
This then was my first tree purchase after coming back to the ‘Bonsai-Fold.’ I have now had this tree since the 12th July this year so just a month. Thought I would spend a bit of time looking and thinking, but mostly it arrive in awful condition and needed to come back to health first. It was an eBay purchase from a nursery in Italy. Cost me £190 which frankly I realise I overpaid. Stands 33cm from soil surface.
A little wiring but mostly clipping which I find is the best way to shape Firethorns. I will repot into something more suitable next year in late Winter early Spring. I have used the back as the new front. The bottom branches left and right are far too straight so disguise is required with further growth. They are too thick to reshape.
Thank you for looking.
