Cloud Trees:

We are  very  pleased to be  offering this  year a very limited number of Japanese Cloud Trees. Cloud Trees  are selected slow growing trees that have been specifically  trained and  pruned over a number of  years to  cloud bonsai form.

Ginkgo biloba STARTER Cloud Tree

 

We are pleased to be offering  our very own shaped young Japanese Ginkgo trees . These trees are on their third  year as trained cloud trees and have been shaped every winter  (with wiring) - they are now the 'S' shape but require pinching and pruning to produce the clouds over the next few years - You can , of course, choose to carry growing it upwards if you prefer (and shape more bends into the trunk).

These ginkgos are deciduous - in autumn the leaves will turn a beautiful golden yellow and drop - new leaves will then appear in Spring. 

We may have a central cane on these to shape them higher, you can remove this if required.
