Title: Satsuki Bonsai-en late fall workshop
Post by: JRob on November 14, 2010, 04:34 PM
Hello All,

Just finished attending 2 fabulous days with Dave Kreutz at Satsuki Bonsai-en doing late fall work on my Satsuki. Shim posted some pics from last weekend when he and I were at Dave's place working on our trees as well (Shim could not attend this weekend he had a Concerto competition up at school today. He won!) I believe Shim detailed what fall work is done and I know I posted a detailed description sometime last fall. To prepare for the weekend I reread my autographed copy of Bonsai Techniques for Satsuki by Naka, Ota & Rokkaku. I worked on three of my trees and they are now ready to be wired. I will do that over the long Thanksgiving Weekend. The only wiring will be on the fine outer tips of the branch pads with copper wire sizes 21-23. Here are pics of the trees. The Moyogi (informal upright) shohin is a variety called 'Hakurin', a Neagari (exposed root) shohin 'Sachi-no-tsukasa' and a Sokan (double trunk) 'Togenkyo'. Six of us attended the this weekend workshop and I was glad two of our friends from the Chicago area came down. The other 4 were all from the St. Louis Club. We had a blast. What fun!
