@cheesey73 @Squares this is mums bonsai again and she is worried it is not looking as good, is it just because its still only spring/

My horse chestnut looks pretty much the same so yes, probably.... I have been watering diligently though because we have had limited rain

@AnnikasGarden thank you have you ever potted yours on, she was wondering if she should get a bigger pot and some bonsai compost? It was a gift to her a few years ago and she doesn't know too much about them, but she does love it 😁
