Title: JBP slooooooow progression
Post by: Alain Bertrand on July 17, 2011, 06:06 AM
Here are some pics of the slow progression of one of my seed grown JBPs.

The tree was sown in the less sunny part of my grand-ma 's garden when I was living in Japan, then transferred to my parent's a few yeasr after all things done without any bonsai specific care. I took over the tree in 2002 and started to try to make a bonsai from it. Put it in the ground in winter 2005 but this was rather a failure (JBPs don't grow well in my garden, though JRPs and Scots pines thrive). I dug it out in spring 2010 and the last pic  is its present state.
There is still quite a way before it can be called a bonsai.

Slow, but looks decent nonetheless. If it get's full sun for at least 6 hours a day it should start speeding up. Looking forward to seeing its progression.
