1 to 1 with Bonsai Eejit – The Eejit Pine

This bog pine started life with me around 4 years ago. It was collected from a peat bog and planted into a crate with stone grit. Although the tree has always grown well it was time to repot.

The tree got it’s first styling from Ian Young in September 2017, hence the name.

It continued to thrive during 2018 and needed bit of editing in autumn 2018.

Although it looks harsh in the pictures the tree is packed with buds.

Again, the re-pot was very successful with no nasty surprises. It went straight to the tunnel like the rest for protection over winter/spring.
