    Nice tree :) I really like where it is heading. One thing though that I noticed that bothers me is the lower left branch - mainly because of how small it is. Furthermore, when I look at the tree this branch seems to throw off the balance of the tree by moving the center of the tree more to the...

    New Years Thoughts and Plans

I have been really blessed to be a part of this community and bonsaitalk, without them I probably would never have continued with bonsai, it would have been a...

    1st Rhododendron

    here's my experience, found a rhody, dug it up with a ton of roots, chopped it like crazy till there was nothing left but two main trunks, no leaves or anything, stuck it in a pot that it barely fit in, a couple days later, attacked it and took off a bunch of the roots, potted it up again so it...

    Escallonia (Yamadori?)

    Escallonia (Yamadori?)

    So here is (what i think to be) and Escallonia that i dug up out of my backyard yesterday. THe previous owners of the house had planted it i guess and it was hidden behind other plants etc. so i dug it up. (does this count as yamadori if its from my backyard? - i've never touched it or anything...

    ID that bush

    Ok it's all dug up and potted in a huge pot. Ugh i'm going to be sore tomorrow... i hope it lives... I think i got a pretty big root ball... there was no tap root, which has a relief, unless i just somehow managed to get the whole thing since it was pretty much planted on a huge cement slab...

    ID that bush

    Ok so i talked to my parents and apparently the bush does get pinkish flowers on it. so we'll say :) maybe it is escallonia :) thanks for your help... i'll have to wait till it flowers to confirm, but we'll see.. it's taking me forever to dig the thing up, it's right on top of a million water...
