Hobbit house bonsai


(Les Lonsdale) #1

I was inspired by the famous ‘hobbit house bonsai’ on the web by Chris Guise from the UK. I had a try at it using a boxwood.

Thanks! I know that the lower right limb is a problem (too straight and long), but this was the only tree that I had that would work in this setting. I will try to graft some foliage closer in on the limb, then cut it off shorter.

I think it is appropriate. If you could make the pad a bit larger and flatter, it would be providing much needed shade for the ‘roof’, increasing the natural cooling for inside. IMHO. otherwise it looks wonderful in this setting.

Thanks Bob! I appreciate the advice. That’s a good idea!

I guess all of the lectures and internet classes are starting to pay a few benefits. Thanks.
