Yesterday, 6th of March 2012, we assisted to the second course on bonsais cares in Granada’s Science Park. We brought our bonsais with us to apply some of the ageing techniques.
We have seen how to work on dead wood, how to create an old effect on a young tree like creating dead branches for example. We have also learnt reproduction techniques like layering in order to produce roots from a branch and some grafting techniques.
It was very interesting and now we propose ourselves as a challenge to create a tanuki with our wild olive bonsai, which is to melt a living branch on an old piece of trunk! Let’s meet again in October to see how it goes!!!
