Do you also just use your famous 80/20 substrate mix here, with lots of fertilizer, water, and good drainage? Very impressive. Have you done the same thing with the needles that you describe in you back budding tutorial? Or have you just 'arranged' them with wire very carefully? Thanks for all good work you share with us. Good man.

All of my trees are in modern substrate and all are treated the same. Conifers also respond to the hedge cutting method. But not so much. The 'dense' effect one gets with styling technique. There is no need for much back budding to get this look.

Thank you for your prompt, plain answer, Walter. So I will go back into the garden, rearranging branches once more!

Boy, this went Trojan overgrown mess to something on its way to being beautiful pine bonsai.

I like the crescent pot virtual. If you had a crescent pot that was a little shallower or less curved - shorter, it would match the curve in the trunk better, maybe.
