Sun with Roy Nagatoshi at Ft.Worth

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 !
