Title: Austrian Black Pine
Post by: johng on July 02, 2009, 09:40 PM
This is not exactly bonsai but I found this tree marked down 75% at a local Sears.  It was pretty much just a Christmas tree when I started...  I have not really known what I was doing over the last 3 years but its been fun and I think the tree has responded well.  Here are a couple of pics...please go easy on me...I fully realize that this tree breaks most of the design guidelines we usually follow in bonsai.

Many Asian apply what I call Japanese gardening (bonsaiing) techniques to their landscape trees. Do you plan on continuing to develop this tree in the landscape.

BTW

Their was a cooling show, the saying went at the end "Remember if Yan can cook, so can you"
