Here is a brief photographic guide to a Chamaecyparis lawsoniana as a bonsai which was exhibited this year at Chelsea Flower Show.

Original tree purchased from a garden centre and initially worked on and placed in a bonsai training pot

The tree over ten years on now developed with a full canopy of lush green foliage

The same tree in March 2012 as a fully developed Bonsai tree
