Shohin Yew First Styling

This is a shohin taxus cuspidata that was imported from Japan 4 years ago, which I acquired about 3 years ago. It has taken all of this time to acclimatise the tree, to re-pot it into a medium which is appropriate for our weather and to get it growing with sufficient vigour to continue its development.

This is how it looked before any work was carried out.


After the creation of a jin, some shari and an initial pruning.


After a little more pruning and the addition of some wire to open up the branches


And from the other side before


During the work


And after


I think this little tree has great potential and I look forward to its continued development in the future.

  1. When I moved from Norfolk to Brittany en France, it took my bonsai 3 years to acclimatise…….who would have thought!😏
