Your Bonsai needs a Bigger Pot! - 1 May 2011
One of my hobbies for the last 10 years or so has been to grow bonsai trees. I have brought a few over from the UK when we moved over. My neighbours think I am mad!
I normally recieve at least one guest everyday to my house, normally for a quick coffee and a chat, and to invariably to inspect my gardening
effots and tell me where I am going wrong. Recently whilst repotting my UK Hazel bonsia tree and giving it a quick trim I was visited by one of my
neighbours on such a coffee/inpection visit.
'What is this?'
'Its a nut tree' (I don't know the Bulgarian for Hazel)
'It needs a bigger pot or it will never get any bigger'
It is times like these that I am glad that I am not fluent in Bulgarian/Turkish as the actual answer I would give to them would probably sound more bizarre
than the answer I fobbed him off with. Telling someone from a small rural Bulgarian village that it is my intention to keep the tree small so as to make it decorative
would probably get them telephoning the men in white jackets. They have only just got round to the idea of me planting sunflowers where the seeds are no good for eating, and now I am
growing a 'nut tree' that if I keep it in a pot will never produce me any nuts!
In fact now that I have written it like that perhaps they have a point!
