This juniper I bought for about Ā£7 6yrs ago.
It’s an extremely slow growing tree, regardless of how much you feed it. It’s coming along. It’s not the best tree in the world but I keep it because it’s one I can do bonsai with my little girl. If it’s gets wrecked it doesn’t matter so much….
Here’s some of its progression.

  1. Nice work Bryan! Is it a common juniper? Doing bonsai with kids that age is no easy pursuit – it’s all I can do some days to stop my 3yr old performing some unnecessary pruning. He does love pretending though with his wee scissors!

      That photo was taken last year… But she helped again this year.
      I spent time with her plucking the foliage as apposed to cutting. Works ok with this one cause its not a looker šŸ˜‰
