Beginning a Pyracantha Bonsai From Nursery Inventory

A couple of days in the past I discovered this Pyracantha on the nursery part of a close-by ironmongery store.

Pyracantha as bought – January 2019

I should not actually be shopping for extra timber, however my solely Pyracantha died a couple of 12 months in the past, so I could not resist the temptation to exchange it.

I used to be fairly certain I knew what I wanted to do with this one, however I took it to a workshop on Saturday within the useless hope that I might be advised my plans had been too drastic.

No such luck. It was by no means going to work as a twin trunk as a result of one trunk had a number of motion whereas the opposite was lifeless straight.

The straight one needed to go. Two cuts and I used to be completed.

January 2019 – after pruning

I used to be actually unhappy to see all of the berries go into the trash can, however typically the artwork of bonsai requires sacrifices.

Now I am going to let the tree develop for some time earlier than deciding on the following step. Maybe in time I am going to minimize it even shorter.
