Tiger Bark Ficus Stump aka Broom Style Workshop with Glen Lord (Spring Celebration on May 13, 2023)

** This is an all-inclusive workshop with the trees, supplies and tools provided.

We’re all familiar with the imported s-curve Ficus trees, and they’re really cool. However, this workshop is for a unique styling of a Broom Style (straight trunk) bonsai.

Broom style Bonsai (Hokidachi) is ideal for trees that have abundant, delicate branching.

The trunk is erect and does not extend to the tree's apex, instead dividing in all directions at roughly one-third of the tree's height.

It takes patience but the finished products of Broom style are one of the most appealing we can create in bonsai.
