Hornbeam Bonsai: 6 years of development

Carpinus betulus, the European Hornbeam, is a beautiful British native tree. This bonsai had been in development for 6 years, bought from relatively cheap nursery stock.

Repotted April 2014...

Looking good, both front and back.

The tree in 2008, a growing season on from
being lifted from the ground.


  1. It's a favorite of many friends and family who visit, it is proving slow to build ramification though.
