Satsuki Azalea Variety Kaho
A group of bonsai hunters from Salisbury Bonsai Society went to Lodder's in Holland recently looking for a nice Satsuki.
After many hours of searching and selecting they finally came back with the tree below.
Having collected the tree from Clive in Salisbury I found that the soils was like concrete. The water just sat on top and took some time to go through.
After some thought I decided that I needed to re pot and located a bag of Kanuma.
The roots were in good condition, I decided to use a different pot. The finished tree is good.
I had received a large number of pictures of trees in Lodders, and on looking through I saw a tree that I though was the one I would like them to buy me. Guess what it was the one they picked.
Pyracantha and Crab Apple.
