November 2019 Calendar Tree – Leptospermum: Turkey Bush

Turkey Bush

I purchased this Leptospermum (Turkey Bush) at the club Xmas auction in 2012 for the massive sum of $6. It was over 100cm tall in a black nursery pot. I was advised by some club members not to cut all the branches at once, so it
took me over a year to reduce the size down to 58 cm. I put it in a Bonsai in 2014

My aim is to get all the branches hanging down to resemble a Weeping Willow. The tree has a lovely coloured trunk in shades of pink to white with hardly any bark. Brenda
