Japanese Maple Bonsai Decisions Part 2
This is a follow on video in which I take you through the process of how I decide upon the shape of a Maple Bonsai. We see different varieties of maple including the Beni-chidori (an easy tree to air layer) and the Deshojo (which has foliage that’s a lovely red color). We also see the famous Peter Chan Split Trunk Maple.
With Maples is doesn’t take long for them to grow new branches and twigs so be confident and be bold when choosing the shape for your tree.
Top Tip: Always allow room for dieback and always look at the base of the tree before you decide the front.
