Boxwood #2

Got this at the same time as the other.

The process has been much the same, but not quite as quick.  It still needs to grow into a pre-bonsai for a bit.

Your boxwood is coming along very nicely. Great start.  Will be awesome in a few more years.  Slow growers, right?

What I really really like is seeing your larch tips in the background.     8)

What's more beautiful than those fresh new 'shaving brushes'?    ;D

Thanks Tom.  These 'wintergems' seem to grow fairly rapidly.  I wouldn't call them slow growers, but everyone always seems to mention that.  I think the fact that kingsville is widely used for boxwood bonsai may have something to do with it.  I hear those are very slow growing due to the extreme dwarfism.
