Well it's been about 8 months since collection and growing well, i think I'll just let it gain more strength over summer and keep thinking of a style. Feel free to throw some idea some at me.

Hi Mark ,looks like you are in for some fun times with this one. I have several small seedlings on the go. The one thing I would advise is to get some wire on those new branches , they are incredibly hard to get some nice movement , once they get a bit of size. Good luck and looking forward to further updates. Cheers John.

Hi Mark...not easy from the pics, but something along these lines removing the middle trunk making it a two main upper trunk tree with your solid lower trunk from the third image down (very solid from this angle,very nice)

Radiating the branches and of course covering the top third to half of tree with foliage subtlely segmented.

The sketch is more drawn towards to show you branching detail, that's how i would attack it obviously with it not sitting directly in front of me, great material mate.

Anthony

Thanks John I'll keep that in mind.
Thanks Anthony, With that design I'll have to cutt that big stump off down lower to a new leader and Im thinking of throwing a airlayer on the other two at different heights. Might be my best chance of getting some roots to grow.

Hi Adam

Dont forget that you cant reduce the flowers or the fruit in bonsai :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

If its a cascade ground cover then should be OK as they will only be a trip hazard when ripe.

Hi all
Update on this one.
Spent a little bit off time today setting the structure and removed the largest leaves. Lots of branch thickening to do but I'm happy so far.
Cheers
Before the thinning

A few trunk close ups for interest
