I still consider most of my trees to be pre-bonsai. I have a couple that have developed over the years into what I consider “bonsai”, or at least “near-bonsai”. This tree is the first one that I purchased in a state of development that I would call already a bonsai. I bought it from from Brussel’s bonsai, Mississippi, last September. After overwintering it and waiting for it to leaf out this spring, I slip-potted it today into a Japanese pot purchased from Bjorn at Eisei-en nursery in Tennessee. The internet can be a wonderful thing.
