Living work of art

"Bonsai. Neprekidan ciklus davanja i uzimanja, između čovjeka i drveta sa vječno živim i nikada završenim umjetničkim djelom."

"Bonsai can show the beauty of a work of art and become itself a work of art, only when it is true expression of the artist's creative power." S.E.

akcija veliki silvestris i ostalo...

Repoting big silvestris tree after 4 years. Thak's to bonsai friend Jevgenij for help.






Repoting Abies Coreana after 3 years in pot.




Betula Pendula, silver birch. This tree is a gift from Veljko Bačić from Rijeka to Jevgenij Conar. Tree slowly growing in not quite good conditions ih too wet and deep plastic pot, wit insufficient of feeding. We give her better pot, and with sunny morning position and better feeding I hope in 2 years it will be a great tree.

Nebary day

Today is a day to transplant some material dug before two or three years. Because is mostly oaks and some linden, main work is to cut and shorten rest of big central root. I cut it on 10-15 oaks and some linden trees. Now trees will rest and grow free next two years in peace....

Pripreme za proljeće

Skinuti žicu, ako koja grana još uvijek dobro ne stoji, pokušati to popraviti sa zategama, orezati, povaditi višak grančica, prikratiti one koje ostaju....zatim slijedi presađivanje...

Remove wire, if some branch still does not look well, try to fix it with long wires, prune, take out the excess branches, cut short those that remain ....  and followed by transplanting ...
