Sunday Roy came to the Botanical Gardens in Ft.Worth & conducted a demo. on a
Japanese boxwood for the Ft.Worth Bonsai Society.
Here Roy talks about the growth habits
of the boxwood & how it can grow a dense canopy.
After cutting away a lot of the foliage
he recalled a saying his mentor John Naka had
when styling a tree "you should leave open
spaces for the birds to fly through".
Roy continues to prune & wire the tree
He has transformed the boxwood into a
beautiful tree shape with plenty of spaces
for the birds to fly through!
The tree was raffled off and the luck winner
was Joe Andrews !
