Last Friday, 18th November, we participated to an olive bonsai workshop in the Sciences Park of Granada. We have worked on a pre-bonsai: a 2 year old olive tree that had been pruned a few times previously but without any particular style or shape.
We did the formation pruning which is the most important in the bonsai’s life.
We also put aluminum wires on some branches to reinforce the desired shape. It has been very interesting! Now we’ll make sure to take a lot of care of our little bonsai to make it grow healthy!
In the next workshop, in spring, we’ll keep on pruning our bonsai and learn other techniques. This workshop will take place during the third week of February 2012 in the Sciences Park of Granada.
