Two for Joy: Bonsai Conifer trees

I should start by saying that conifers are my least favourite tree. I have four in my garden, 3 at the back and 1 near the front. They block out the trains so they do have a purpose but they look half dead and haunt my garden with a sombre presence. When i was cleaning up the garden I found two little conifer saplings with lovely roots.

So my aim is to turn them into miniture trees with Bonsai. I have never done this before but think it will look really cute. they are currently in little pots and some regular soil. i found them in between the decking so they are pretty hardy.

Conifers can grow between 1-2 feet a year so hopefully in a year I will have a little tree, or two little trees that I can start pruning and creating mini trees and ode so my hated conifers. Turning my gardening dislike into joy.

Have you ever tried Bonsai?

About DP

Hi, I am Dana. I am dyspraxic trying to function and get organised in my dysfunctional world. I don’t shy away from technology but I do have a preference for all things paper and analog. I am trying to organise our lives through my bullet journal, travel around the globe and save money!!! Impossible I know. I have a hard time believing that you should spend a fortune on one day. So, with my creative skills and frugality I will hopefully create my dream wedding without getting into debt. My bullet journal has been a life saver, so much that I now have 3. One for life, one for wedding planning and my last for this blog. I am lost without them. I have a wonderful partner, two fur babies ( Manhattan and Frank) a full time job that I love and my love of blogging. Please bear with me with my spelling and grammar I do proof read about 4 times but I still miss things. I won’t be offended if you correct me. So that’s me, I draw and teach art to both kids and adults and I believe anyone can create anything you just have to practice. I have had to try and try at organising, that is why I am the Dysfunctional Planner.
