I had the chance to dig a Chinese language elm from a backyard and I used to be delighted to seek out that it was a corky bark selection and fairly giant.
Like all crops in gardens the faucet root was giant, about 75mm throughout and I wanted the reciprocating noticed to assist. As soon as out the nabari was terrific in order that was an actual bonus.
I wanted a big plastic pot to cater for the nabari after which a few luggage of potting media to complete the job. If I’ve one grievance it’s that the proprietor didn’t trim it laborious sufficient whereas it was within the floor, you already know it wasn’t grown for bonsai functions. I’m kidding actually as that is nice inventory!
This is among the greatest backyard “yamadori” I’ve ever dug so there’s a giant smile on my face.
And at last a take a look at the trunk bark, lovely!
