Howdy!

Whilst clearing out our cattlegrid the other day I found an young ash tree growing in it (about 2 feet tall) and with Willie's posts here recently I decided to have a go at it as a bonsai. Unfortunately before I saw it potential I had ripped off the top of it's head so to speak Embarassed

This is it here, I haven't pruned it or anything as from the few bonsai sites I've looked at I've gotten the impression I should probably leave well enough alone for the time being until it gets over the shock I've already given it.



Hopefully it'll recover!

ETA - ok, image seems unwilling to show itself, I give up!

Edited your post to include the image SorchaBC.

In Picasa, right click on the picture and click view image in your browser. Next, paste the address in between the [Img] and [/img] tags in the Irish gardeners. post message window.
You can also highlight the image address in you post and click the handy Img button atop the post window to add the tags to either end. Smile
