English Hornbeam Bonsai Material
Native to the U.K carpinus is a principle woodland species that can make a very big and majestic tree which is exactly what this beautiful bonsai does. In bonsai cultivation the tree prefers a little protection from the sun in summer and will thrive in very light shade. Completely hardy in the U.K Hornbeam is a very simple and robust tree that is rewarding to care for and train as bonsai. Hornbeam does not need to be re-potted quite as often as other deciduous varieties. Throughout summer regularly remove large leaves and those that either hand down or grow inwards.
A big chunky hornbeam with a lot of character. Natural hollows and deadwood. Now three years in it's pot and recently worked for the first time. Ready for a new pot by spring time. Still a way to go but coming along very nicely. Wire should stay on the tree until June next year or until it begins to tighten up from branch swelling.
