Amazing, I've never seen that done before with a Horse Chestnut. 😍😍😍
Looks lovely and healthy! One for you @MrBloom 😜
Oh fab Keely, I'm doing the same with my conkers , hope it gets as good as your mums 👏👏😍
@juliesgarden good luck hope so this is quite old as mum was given it from an old friend she used to help do his garden and he had alot of old bonsai's 👍🌿
#green bonsai tree
Been to mums tonight and she would like to thank @cheesey73 @Squares @kathy for all the advise earlier this year she took it on board and its now thriving 👍👍👍
Your welcome anytime @Keely
That's nice did you grow it from the conker☺
No it was a gift from a friend that mum used to help out @jacko1
I've got a few I will post some pics
That's brilliant news @Keely
Great news hun! Glad your mum enjoying her garden x
@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 😁
Our tree looks like this when the new leaves appear
@kathy awe thanks for that its really reassuring,
i would say give it a feed :)
@squares what feed is best?
I would say it need a feed

@Squares your a diamond thank you for the link very useful 👍😁
Mums oak bonsai has got sticky buds does anyone know what it could be?
Stick buds are usually on a horse chestnut
@cheesey73 maybe it is a horse chestnut then she cant always remember which one it is, is it normal to have sticky buds then?
lovely yes aesculus hippocastanum :)
Couldn't think of the Latin name it's a lot of years since I was at college lol @Squares
Yes it's normal @Keely
@cheesey73 its about the only latin name i do remember ;)
I used to know them all but I'm getting old and my memory it's what was lol @Squares
