New 360 Bonsai Added

Today Philip and I put together this Corkbark Elm group planting. Here’s a few snaps and a 360° flash of the finish group.

Growbag tray from B&Q. Drilled for drainage.

Wooden battens added to allow for drainage and air circulation

Selection of Elms to be used.

Bare rooted and ready for placement.

Mix of grit, cat litter and akadama.

Wired into place for stability

Adding more mix before adjusting angles and heights.

Now for a good watering and pop it into the poly tunnel for protection.

Two eejits, well, the one on the left anyway :-)
