Today I didn't feel like going to the baby koi show, so I spent the day at home with some very good friends, Pine Pienaar and Joe Valez, we had a super time Harvesting and planting Bonzai's.
The mud dam where all the fish came out 2 weeks ago, was being cleaned and prepared for the next batch of fish when I noticed these 3 small trees on one of the walls of the dam under a thorn bush, that's when I decided to call Joe for help , [as he has a lot of stunning Bonzai's] .
Thanks for the help Joe, we learnt a hell of a lot about bonzai's today from Joe. Never thought I would like playing with little trees, but today was an eye opener for Pine and myself, and guess what ??
WE ARE HOOKED. bounce bounce : bounce .Took a few videos.

The planting is finished, Joe said once they get stronger he will come and cut and shape the trees.

Thanks Joe , your son is a great help to you, it was amazing to see father and son working together on the trees.

WOW I GOT MYSELF A NEW TOY "BONZAI"

Hi Costa,
It was my pleasure Wink I must admit that it's pretty rare to find trees that are already shaped Like the ones we dug out today.Well done for spotting them bounce
I normally plant the Bonsai in plastic containers until they are established then I start wiring and shaping once I am happy I repot them to a ceramic Bonsai pot. This time of the year I dip them every 2nd week with Nitrosol for strong foliage . Bonsai are easy to keep if you water correctly the problem with most people is they get to eager and overwater or underwater. If the correct soil is used as well as repotting is done at the correct periods there should be no problem, of course some wiring and pruning is required especially when spring comes around with the new foliage . Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Also one thing to remember Bonsai do not to well indoors alien

That's great Wayne, so you also have stamp sized Trees Laughing Laughing Basketball we will all be able to help each other with tips and ideas on this hobby, never thought I would get excited about trees.

It would be interesting to see how many people on this forum have Bonzai with their koi.????.

What a great day yesterday! I enjoyed national braai day in good company and as you said Costa, got totally hooked on Bonsai. What a great teacher you are Joe. I know there is plenty to learn about the subject, but you definitely gave me the confidence to make a start. I am actually on the way to go look for a bonsai to start learning the hobby.

Hi Neli,

Yes, try and collect trees with the biggest stump possible tapered upwards . I don't know what type of trees you have on your side but I would start with a Ficus or wild olive

I have ficus benjamina a lots of them...the fig we have in the bush is carika if I recall well it has big lief.
There are some nurseries here with lots of ever grown plants...and one with indigenous trees...I need to try those....first it will be easier than the bush.
Any advise on type of tree?
I am not sure if we have wild olive here or how it looks like.
For now I will try to get small lief trees with big trunks...how high should they be?
Any way to shorten them so they still look good?

This is my new mini orange tree bonsai, Joe discovered it in my garden, I sent my wife to visit her sister for the day and then pinched her tree, I find it better to ask for forgiveness than for permission to take the tree. But boy have I paid for that tree since then pale Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Sad Sad
