Watering & Feeding

Yep, it’s British summertime and you need to be watering and feeding your trees… I’ve came across this article this morning from Swindon and District Bonsai, a very good article indeed describing the need for water and feed.
I use a liquid feed and a slow release pellet with my trees. The small pellets resting on the soils surface, and liquid feed once every two weeks if its not been raining too heavily. Pellets replenished or added too every 4-5 wks. The pellets were a replacement for the chicken poo I fed my trees early on in the year. The stench was just too much. Especially when my kids have their play shed so close!!

Your never too young to learn, and you could have an apprentice like my Son. He loves defoliating my Yamadori Beech and look after the lower trees with good watering!!20140626-082442-30282175.jpg

    We almost skipped the basics and went to walking. Far quicker than my little girl. She loves helping leaf prune and juniper foliage šŸ™‚
    They change so fast! Don’t be in a rush for them to change… Enjoy every moment šŸ™‚
