    LARCH AND WIRING

    No problem - I do it all the time. Larch are one of the better ones when it comes to "accepting" being wired.

    Bonsai on int'l flight

    They ship Chinese elms from China to Europe all the time - they are in the dark for 30-35 days...they just lose leaves and regrow them again. That's yet another reason they are used as bonsai. Where are you going?

    New cultivar?

    I've seen others with this kind of leaf. I even had this one growing last year. IMG_1964 by Jerry Norbury, on Flickr

    Do you have a least favorite species that you still own

    Least favourite - Celtis. Chinese celtis - I think I've had 4 or 5 even and all they do, from the day you get them, is slowly die. I now have the cuttings of the last one. They are ALSO slowly dying.

    Show me your backyard set up!

    If I lived nearby I would not be able to stop myself coming there and sorting that out. It would be beyond my self control - I'm sorry.

    What's the ideal number of trees?

    You need so many that you can't accurately count them so that when one dies it has no effect on the total.

    When to become concerned?

    It gives me a good reason to pick them up, rotate them and move them to another spot. Making "another spot" first is also a task.

    Deciduous trees not being very deciduousey?

    Chinese elms don't even need dormancy - they just keep going as long as there's enough light. Mine grow new leaves regular as clockwork in spring, regardless of whether they still have leaves or were completely bald.
