SUMMER 3rd year. Age : 8 years Origine : Nursery stock Height : 18cm Pot : Oval chinese drum pot So I found a new pot for my Tree. Below pictures show the progress of this bonsai tree over time.
WINTER 3rd year. Winter presents a good opportunity to get a clear view on the structure of the tree. Up until now I am happy with the result.
AUTUMN 2nd year. The foliage shows good progress and I started wiring and bending some branches. The marked branch is disturbing the balance of this tree. So I decided to take it away and make a little jin. With Potentilla it's better to jin away bigger branches because this species does not make callus to heal a wound.
SUMMER first year. It's growing well. That's always a good first step after re-potting!
SPRING first year. This project started with a nursery plant. I thought it had potential because of the relative thick trunk and the presence of nebari. This photo was taken after cutting two third of the top, and after re-potting.
