A weeping willow

Great to see Simon Temblett's willow receiving recognition. He did the final preparation at a class I attended. It started off as a cutting about 20 years ago. The weeping style was created by attaching blobs of (green) plasticene to the finer branches to weigh them down. He also made the pot.

Walter - glad I finally got the chance to greet you at the NT. I really loved your trees.

beautiful tree. How long does it take to grown like this?

Walter Pall said...

It takes you 10 t0 20 years if you already know what you are doing. If you don't it will never happen. You have to spend ten years to know enough to start one like these.

I am so encouraged to see that weeping willow. I've been determined to grow weeping willows but haven't been able to find any information on them as bonsai. That plasticene trick is a great idea.
