More pics of my Pre-Bonsai Acer Palmatum ‘Orange Dream’

I’ve been talking a bit about my Acer Pal. Orange Dream on /r/bonsai so I thought I would post a few more pics.

Anyone with any ideas about design or a plan for the future feel free to comment and let me know. Any advice will be welcome.

Trees for the Future

image

I potted up a few bits of nursery and landscape stock today into growing pots to let them grow on for 2 or 3 years so hopefully they will make some nice little trees in the future.

Going from left to right they are:

Fagus sylvatica purpurea
Carpinus Betula
Horse chestnut
Taxus Baccata
Acer Palmatum orange dream – this one has a really nice nebari so should be an interesting tree when it grows.

I haven’t pruned the Taxus or Acer at all. I will trim back the Taxus a little to promote new growth but I think I will leave the Acer and have a look at it in the spring. The Chestnut has been chopped so I will let it grow out for a season and then look at the branching again. The beech and the hornbeam have been lightly trimmed and cut to approx height so I will let them grow out and look at proper branch selection in spring.
