Good Morning all,

My name is Luke and I live on a boat on the Thames just north of Oxford. This was one of the main reasons as to why I decided to start the hobby in any sort of earnestness, due to the shortage of space and lack of garden. I currently have a few trees, maybe fifteen or twenty sticks in pots, most of which are collections or sickly garden centre finds and might not even make the winter. We’ll see. I have one S shaped standard Chinese Elm tree bought by my girlfriend in July this year at Hampton Court flower show, my first tree and the closest thing to actual bonsai that I own.

I have always had an interest in bonsai because I am mad about trees really. Put me in a woodland and you will never find me happier, so unable to keep the full sized versions, coupled with my penchant for arty fartiness it seems like the perfect combination!

I have been trying to register for a couple of months now, so I look forward to joining in with and learning from you all. :Big Thumb:

Cheers, Luke

Hello Luke, Welcome to Weetrees. It's a bit quiet on the forum at the moment. Everybody is waiting for their trees to hibernate, so that they can start the winter jobs. So there should be a lot more activity soon.

Thanks very much guys. I’ve been on BNut for a while but I’m looking forward to get more of a perspective from closer to home. It’s nice to know theres such an active community.

Cheers Richard thats good to know. I may well be in touch if I need some advice from a more experienced local hand.

And thanks Paul as well. I nearly came to the last winter show but missed it so maybe I’ll attend in Feb. I reckon my desperation for spring will be reaching fever pitch by then!
