souvenir from Bonsai Autumn

I could not resist to purchase this shohin olive for part of my prize money. It ia a precious piece of material. This is the wild form from the Spanish isles with vey small foliage.

Walter,

Very good material... I like it too.

As olives are Mediterranean trees, would you be growing it in greenhouse condition or in the open?

What kind of a pot you have in mind for the potensai? This crescent pot looks terrible. A round or rectangular pot would suit better. What are your thoughts?

Shaukat,

I grow olives outside in full sun all summer long. When it starts to freeze I bring them inside my house close to a window but cool.
I kind orf like the crescent pot. But, yes, I may look for a better one.
