    Does Kanuma turn into dust?

    Every time the bag is handled the particles bang together and they make more dust. Try to imagine how many times the bag has been thrown or bounced in a truck before it got into your possession.

    Eastern hemlock top

    Some were early and some were late. In general it’s been a very odd spring.

    Small Eastern Hemlock development

    There are actually two tops. The trunk splits above the lower left branch and I’ll have to choose a primary top. The tree is a bit one sided, so it will be a challenge to make that work. I’ve seen it done before on some of Walter Palls spruces. Persevere and the rest will make itself evident.

    I really didn’t have time to actually style it. Mostly it just got repotted into smaller pot and the heavy lower branch was chopped back. I didn’t want to beat it up more than that. The program was largely a slide progression of the large one. I might try to work on it after the summer cut back.

    Looking good! I'll be curious to see the little guy develop.

    They are immortal. I have one that was seemingly killed after two polar vortex’s in a row. It seems every time I think it’s gone, the next year it pokes up. “Hi, remember me”!!

    I usually use both organic and dyna grow but I’ll give the organic only a try. However I can’t do the nursery pot thing. Beautiful plants in ugly pots is not an option for me. I’ll try to conjure something up this winter if they make it through this growing season. What’s the purpose of the...

    Those are quite the beauties. I have a real soft spot for lady slippers. Mine are pubescens. This is my first try and not sure what to expect. My plan is to treat them like my trees. Water every day, take it in around Thanksgiving, store in my unheated garage. There’s a guy in Ohio that...

    What about adding elemental sulfur to the mix. The micronized kind used for fungus. Does it wash out with all the watering? Is the composted bark a watering issue for over watering?

    The Rosemary Thread

    A lot of sun and dyna-grow and of coarse it gets a pet every time I go up and down the steps.

    Thanks. This is the last pot!!!!! If it can’t live for a long long time in this one........well.....you know. The trunk is up to about 3”+ from just letting it grow. Just pruning to shape.

    The Rosemary Thread

    Here’s an update. This character just seems to like a big pot. It had some fairly aggressive root work done this spring and didn’t skip a beat. The former pot was a 16” x14” round and this new one is 16” x 14” sq. plastic. Pretty convincing imitation for ceramic. I need to save all the weight I...
