This article contains a selection of updates and images I've posted on Social Media (Google+ and Facebook) over the Winter of 2015/16; from December 21st 2015 to March 21st 2016.

hawthorn aerial roots

Mid-March 2016: I became more and more convinced through the Winter that the Rhizotonic I'd been using was having a very positive effect on newly transplanted and collected trees. I had many new roots appearing around the bases/nebari of these trees, and a few, like this Hawthorn collected in November, were pushing out dozens of aerial roots!

hornbeam bonsai

Mid-March 2016: A newly acquired Carpinus betulus/Hornbeam bonsai (pictured right) I purchased in March. I'd had the pleasure of working on this tree over the previous 6-7 years, chopping it down from much larger landscape material (pictured left in 2012) and styling it a few times.
Height 62cm/25" with a 12cm/5" trunk diameter above the roots.

cherry bonsai

Mid-March 2016: My mame Prunus incisa 'Kojo-no-mai'/Fuji Cherry bonsai photographed in mid-March while in full flower.
Developed from a nursery plant since 1997.
Height 3.5"/9cm tall with a 4cm/1.5" wide trunkbase (above the roots).
Pot by Walsall Ceramics

olive bonsai

Mid-March 2016: An updated image of my 60cm tall Olea europaea / European Olive bonsai (right).
Originating in Majorca, I imported this tree as raw material in Spring 2015 (left), and carved and styled it during May 2015. Its now waiting for its first ceramic bonsai pot from Vic Harris.

Mid-March 2016: Repotting the Ligustrum/Privet from the cover of my first book Bonsai Inspirations 1 with Sean Stolp in mid-March, its first for 4-5 years.
