|Our Special Bonsai of the Month:
SOLD - another fine specimen coming shortly...
This is Liana's special
Bonsai, one which she personally feels is worthy
of note because it is a promising specimen,
excellent value, and shows character.
Name: Flowering Ash
Scientific Name: Fraxinus velutina
Date of Birth: 2006
Cultivation: Prefers light to medium soil in an open, sunny position. Frost resistant but drought tender. Regular pinching, trimming and clean up is required to increase branching and keep forest compact.
Age: 13 years
Pot: 33 x 25 x 5.5cm oval, glazed, terracotta, grey textured, Japanese
Description: This month's Bonsai has been chosen by Liana specifically for its trunk and root formations, easy care and interesting root shapes. Flowering Ash trees are deciduous. They live through a cycle of fast growth in spring to summer, flower and seed production in summer to autumn, rest in winter and new growth in spring. A Bonsai without a trim will grow lanky and out of shape so a regular snip of tall shoots will aid in branch formation and compact style. Careful trimming, wiring, carving and rock additions will make this Bonsai evolve into a collector’s masterpiece in a short time.
I’ve planted this Bonsai in one of my private collection Bonsai pots that makes this Bonsai very unique and special. Daily watering and partial shade is necessary for this Bonsai to thrive. It is not an indoor Bonsai and will die without real sun and outdoor moisture. Partial shade will stop the fine foliage from burning but too much shade will make it soft and weak. 50-70% shade cloth in a sunny, bright spot is perfect.
Your responsibility for this Bonsai will be:
1. Must live outside in semi sunny conditions throughout the year.
2. Must be watered every day from October to May.
3. Must be trimmed from Spring to Autumn.
