      Hi Dean, welcome to the forum mate. Thanks for introducing yourself. Your juni looks very lush and healthy, is it kept outdoors? I would get some heavier wire onto it and get some good movement happening through the trunk, It is important to anchor the wire securely at the starting point mate, if its not anchored the wire wont hold the shape. Let it grow on a bit and you could have a nice tree in little time. Good luck with it Dean.

      Welcome Dean, just looking at your Juni I would be inclined to do what Peter said, wire hard while young & get that lead wire right down in the pot. Get your self a design & try & persevere with it & enjoy. Look around the site, there is many potential designs for your tree. Here’s a few to get you going. (where’s Rod when I need him)

      Good luck

      Hi,

      My Names Drew, i am from port stephens, NSW.

      I started with bonsai in Jan with a few figs i pulled from my folks backyard, and now i have a few different varieties. It is very much an obsession a this point, like Dean said, i cruise around susing out road side trees constantly. My favourite trees are ficus and junipers.

      Im not out to win ribbons and peoples opinions with my tree’s i just like the idea of expressing myself thru the art of Penjing/bonsai. Ive been a member of other forums but have never been able to fit into them [My posts sit there stagnant]. Im not a member of any local clubs but i have a few other bonsaists close by and they have been a wonderful help. Not to mention Dean, who has sacrificed a fair few hours helping me via correspondence.

      Look forward to absorbing all the info i can from you guys and also look forward to checking out Bonsai South in a few weeks when we travel to syd to see family.

      Thank you.

      Hello my name is Barry and at 58 yr s old it seems like a back to the future moment ,my wife and I live in Bundaberg and until more recent times have spent my time breeding tropical fish and doing Aqua scapes; but due to some health issues the fish breeding has come to an end! but I do still keep a few planted tanks with cherry shrimps for livestock
      A long time ago my wife and I belonged to a bonsai club in Melbourne but due to kids,work and all the usual stuff had to give it away but now I wont to give it another go
      It would be good to get some 1 on 1 teaching to get me going and I hope to meet others from my local area who maybe able to help me get going
      I have one sad looking Juniper and one Fig which could have potential ,but will see what happens

      Cheers

      A long time ago my wife and I belonged to a bonsai club in Melbourne but due to kids,work and all the usual stuff had to give it away but now I wont to give it another go
      It would be good to get some 1 on 1 teaching to get me going and I hope to meet others from my local area who maybe able to help me get going
      I have one sad looking Juniper and one Fig which could have potential ,but will see what happens

      Cheers

      Hi there, my name is Luke, Im from Adelaide and addicted to bonsai. I have been interested in bonsai for many years, however didn’t get the courage to jump in the deep end so to speak until November 2010. Since then I have bought many “pre-bonsai” and “bonsai trainers” But still dont have anything worthy of the name bonsai. I thought it is best to learn how to care for the trees and keep them healthy before going out an buying an established bonsai. My favourite species are Acer (maple), Pinus (pine), and Ficus (fig) plus I also like Liquidambar’s. I have about 50 maples most only 1-2 years old, but I have a few older ones also. I recently bought my first Japanese Black Pine which is only 6 years old and I was looking for Pine Bonsai in The Temperate Climate – by Hoy Leong Kwong when I found this forum.I have since bought a few more younger ones and currently have about 20 or so JBP seedlings which are only weeks old. I also have some other trees including Radiata pine, Maritime pine, Liquidambar, Chinese Elm, Port Jackson Fig and some Casurarina seedlings. I am a member of the South Australian Bonsai Society and I am also an active member of Ausbonsai forum also.

      I hope to be able to contribute positively to this forum, and gain much knowledge from the more experienced members also. I look forward to meeting you in the forums.

      G’day, I’m JimmyBanks from Melbourne. Have never had a bonsai before but am seriously considering it. I just watched some videos on YouTube with Ryan Neil. Awesome. I’m now looking at getting some but am just wondering, are native trees easy to make into bonsai or would I be better off starting with something else?

      Cheers.

      Hi Kim, welcome, welcome to your bonsai journey.
      It will assist you and us if you gave us some minor details regarding your location in your profile.
      When you ask for knowledge are/or assistance it is best we know something of your environment,
      Do you have trees yet? Don’t be shy, get them up, you will enjoy the progression in years to come, as will we.
      Regards
      Watty

      HI All,

      My name is Kane and I live not far from B Sth nursery. I was driving past it recently (a few times) and I’ve always wanted to grow Bonsai so here I am. I figured I would do some reading before leaping in, although my wife is a good gardener so that helps. I look forward to learning a lot!

      Welcome to the forum.

      Let me be the first to say this once you get into it “You will never look at a tree the same again”

      Its a good thing all the best with the :informal: journey.

      You will not regret your venture into bonsai nor will you regret starting it at Bonsai South – I live in Bungendore, a member of CBS and a volunteer at the ABPCA – I go down to see Leong twice a year for some supplies and maybe a new tree(yeh,yeh,yeh) – he is a wonderful man and a gentleman who shares his knowledge so willingly.
