subscribe button and then take the mill and get the box and save that way you will receive notifications of all my ugg boots and you will not miss it hello everyone this victim count and just to recap and I first started in once I it goes with the school trees and my earlier vigils are me working with small trees and what I was doing with the trees and then i use covered big trees and lately all the videos have been about the victories and i thought it was time to go back to the little fellows and they feel bit neglected so of selected personal tree to work on today’s in the beech tree and it’s wired and we are in august now and it’s time to take my eyes off as the launch is Allah taken in the autumn and will end up with lots of wire mark so I’ll remove these wires quickly and it’s quite easy to take these them off this way as opposed to trying to cut them off if I was cut them off the specific if it was difficult at its time-consuming and so this is much faster way of a stack of me and you’ll repeat producers here under to the camera and again hold the wire this very similar to when you’re wiring it if you are going to take it off this way then hold the wiring is the wire that you trust don’t let the pouch take the stress of the removing you might even break them there we are yes that one and slightly mark the ranch but direction of dig is quite a thick thick wire and branch is quite thick so and this will also has been one mark slightly with its yep there’s a slight mark there it’s just as well I’m taking them off now ms cut into thee where the anchor was is cut in like badly I’ll have to try and sort that out and somehow try and get it to heal absolutely move a little bit of the bark and then if you look appeal in the to calais all just the last one no this couple more after this one here so hold the wire as you unravel the brown chalk and so that the pressure is being taken by a friend at the post of the branch and as the last one here it hasn’t improved so I’ll just prune it a little and tied it up and then the port needs a bit of a clean I’m not reporting it and there we are i’m going to start pruning it starting with big tallest branch first so cut it a lot here and generally i do from bottom up this is going downwards so this will have to come off to give it a clean line and this looks like if they’d just cut it back to them and these also will be reduced there and he in directional pruning and the direction is I want the drawers to go in the direction of a lease I’ve just got it drew out there and same thing with this long branch to reduce it to that the roaster start at gaunche and we will do here and this one dead branches remove not until it to their share I may have to rewire this it’s fighting with this but i’ll leave it till i leave this to another time it’s the wrong time so because i don’t want to remove this don’t you have to be wired and that may be why are going to separate them so that is a little will pull it back to here and this one the improved back to here and this one to hear nice now let it grow up thicken up a bit before we start cutting it back and up top but they’re so that’s all the pruning done for today and tidy up the pot remove these weeds and better of not required also we fear and pull them out with these tweezers and also use my hand to pull out the roots if I can we’ll just take these out lot of weeds here which we shouldn’t be here just take them out like want to retain the stones are quite nice I think well these little stones actually characters I’m gonna have to move them a little that is weeds out place cut them home today while we are here i’ll give it a quick turn we can have a look at the base of the trees have been cleaned of all moss and wings and we’ll try and give it a further clean around II don’t you know my views about moss getting up on the trunk and these surface roots there are few of these up here the screen goes up whether toothbrushes and Altos Russia mixed works why did not earn so no now tidy up the pot and can then go up back to its bench will resume in spea reads i’m just going to dress it up a little it looks pretty brown and uninteresting son just break it up with a little bit of this cat litter and have latched on to recently and then put the stones back and it was told that I took off I think that should really do yeah that makes it up nicely and the mall so go back and put these stones back just saw him around randomly that’s the plot none at least the top of the pot and the last thing to do is to clean the pot and you’re done for today after that unit quick time so you can see what the top of the mall now looks like this is a pop maybe pot gets a good clean I’ve got this damp cloth and I’m going to clean the pot removing any debris and watermarks and stuff like that and then dry it and finish off that polishing it that at of olive oil so I am going to add this piece of cloth with bit of olive oil can then use it to polish the pots of Vegas the olive oil coming onto the cloth here and just rather chance make sure that it’s all fully oiled if we start removing the excess oil okay now turn this loss round and then use that to polish it off last night and koala pat it’ll quickly use the olive oil that’s built onto the turntable lift the turntable a quick tidy up as well which is coming along quite nicely as you can see maybe up nice and shiny pop the tree back on well there to be habits that’s the front of you in a quick down and as we started just the front well that’s all the work I’m going

Styling bonsai tree from yamadori Lonicera collected raw material – Tree 2 – Part 4 by mikbonsai

I’m going to wire them so that these two branches like this one will move up a bit and this will move down a bit so that they become one great big pad both these branches have been widened I’m going to lower this one and raise this one lower this one slightly and we do it again by bending the wire using strength of the wire to bend it and this one’s being wrote up so they basically are looking starting to look more of a pad as opposed to being at different levels and these again and we reduced but this one I’m going to leave as is this one I think I will wire this up these two up and this one I’m going to do choir up and move it a little bit towards the camera and this one also would wire it and bring it down so the crown is more pronounced so now we will continue with this wire and this unwinding in the anti-clockwise direction and sticking very close to the branch and at a 45 degree just wire it avoiding the foliage and round it goes moving the father’s out of the way now working with the wire that of the brows that have just been wired I’m just going to bend it very very gently using the strength of the wire and then I’m gonna straighten it up from this end is starting to point downwards which I don’t want no salt quite I’m not sure dude I’ve already started wiring this branch and we continue in a clockwise direction and as it’s going to be bent in the clockwise direction so again avoiding any foliage – just wouldn’t work some of these branches are quite good and I want to retain those so except it was out of the way so positioning this where there wasn’t a pad before and so that’s that’s done that’s right nicely positioned and just shooting a few more of the branches as they are little bit too longer and we’ll see if I can do something with this one to lower this just a few centimetres perhaps an inch or so and we’ll Y trying to wire this as well now continuing to wire this pad just moving away the foliage and the branches very congested here have to use tweezers to get them out of the way some of the branches are very very fine that’ll do bend it towards the camera downwards and towards the camera so do it very very gently it’s a very thick branch and this is two things one is down and then one is towards the camera now I want to do it very very gently as they break very very brittle and they break very very easily right there we have it I’m gonna shorten this as and now shorten these branches as as bad is about this pad the lower pad is much bigger so the upper part has got to be slightly shorter and in fact we will do the same with the pads higher up so I’m going to cut this wire back to mark here and reduce this so removing paw the white partially as this part is too is too long so you’re going to reduce it to about there so reduce that to up there it was much longer and and see lots of these paths I’m going to reduce now that it’s starting to take shape this is the time to do a bit of tidy up not too sure about this branch here but we’ll leave it for now it can always be removed later because this looks quite neat and tidy and then there’s this one or a sound so I’d me I’m tempted to remove this this branch we will take it out now and it’s done then I think it looks better without that launch and this is a potential this is also a potential front and so this interesting bit here the double trunk and then fusing up here and I have removed a very big branch from here earlier that was when I first worked on it give me a quick turn and that’s the button of our front as well I will continue to grow it in this pot for a while this is a foliage that we’ve taken off today quite a lot just reveal the bonsai that was hiding unrolled all that voltage I have done fair amount and I’m pleased with the progress that I have made with this tree the this was a leader previously which I have managed to wire and turn into a small pot and this one may be the new leader basically it is no growing is thinner and also there’s a fair amount of growth up here and it’ll be far easier to form a crown with this as well and with that just finish giving it a quick turn and that’s very storage although that could be the front but on this side there’s a big contract removed a very big drought when I first started but we’ll see how it develops that’s all for now thank you watching watch more please subscribe the second account forming bonsai in Westland

Bonsai Blue Star Juniper Pruning

This is Iqbal Khan and this is day two that I’ve been working on this blue star juniper, it’s summer pruning and also removing old needles which have browned off from the previous year and once the brown needles are removed it exposes the new branches, that’s how the branches form. I will carry on with this and I wil try and zoom in to show you exactly what’s going on. basically this entire section was covered in dead needles and I’ve removed them with these tweezers and you can now see how this forms a branch also growth which is growing downwards has to be removed and so I’m going to remove that bit there, that one will also be removed as it’s going south and that one as well so now we have a very clean line here so that’s basically the idea behind pruning these blue star junipers. There’s a little knob here which I’m going to remove and basically again make it into a straight line, there we are that’s the knob removed from there, same thing with this branch here, these are the dead needles from previous year which I’m removing by pulling them in the direction of growth so so as not to take off any of the surface area of the bark and same thing on the other side remove these dead needles you can now see the cleaned up part, here is how the branches form.

Now I’m going to tackle this section here and I’m going to remove this branch which is going south and we do that with pair of scissors just like that. That’s come off and the rest of it I’m going to clean up with tweezers removing these dead needles to expose the new branch and again the end is dead so we simply pull it and it’s removed, there and same applies to, there’s a dead stump here so remove that dead stump with that come a… let’s now clean up this part here remove the dead needles and the dead bit at the top so is simply…. the dead bit at the top is simply pinch and removed and same thing with the next one, just fell off so that, that is done I am slowly working my way up the tree and on this branch we’re going to remove this growth which is growing downwards and also here there are too many dead branches so I’m going to remove these little knobs and clean it up That’s a bit better and again there is more growth going downward so this will come off and then there is another, this branch here there is a lot of growth growing downwards so we’re going to remove all this growth which is growing downwards and until we are left with a clean line at the bottom there we are that’s cleaned it up you can see is a clean line at the bottom now and we’ll quickly remove the dead needles on this branch.

Now working on this part they are all these dead needles so I’m going to remove all these and expose the what now becomes a branch there we are that part there and I’ll work on the next part and these are all the brown needles that you can see some at the bottom some facing away from the camera. I will do all those right now so now we move on to another of these branches and continue removing these brown dead needles from previous year’s growth right there we are, that’s all done. There is this downward pointing growth which I’ll remove this end is dead so I am going to remove that more downward-pointing growth which I am going to cut off from here. It is starting to drizzle slightly so I will have to stop now and finish the crown off another time but if any of you have one of these blue star junipers then you need to remove the dead needles in August / September and also prune any growth growing downwards upwards crossing or inwards I’ll give the tree a quick turn and you can see it’s much greener than when I first started there Brown dead needles everywhere and that’s what forms the new branches and that’s where we started.
