    Hawthorn Collecting 2017

    Toshi, the best of the 2 died, I may have already posted about that. The 1 that did make it is doing ok, slower grow than I would like but it is alive. It got some yellow / gold spots on it soon after it leafed out. Per Sorce suggestion I removed the leaves with the most damage. It still has...

    2018 Alabama Bonsai Society Spring Show

    The show was Great! The pictures I see on here of BFV trees are good, but nothing close to what they look like in person... you know .. being there. The trees are truly a work of art and we have seen the progress on this site. I am sure this is true with everyone's trees here, but I have never...

    Yellow Spots on Hawthorn Leaves

    Thanks sorce, been busy and did not get back to this. I had time to check the tree this weekend and it seemed to be about the same, not many more leaves. I was about to take a picture and then remembered I already had... yeah ... been that busy. I will do some plucking tomorrow, should be home...

    Yellow Spots on Hawthorn Leaves

    Of the 2 Hawthorn I collected last year my favorite pick did not make it through the winter. The other did wake and is doing pretty good until this weekend I see yellow spots on many of the leaves. The pictures do not show the spot very well but it is showing throw to the underside. Any idea...

    2018 - Beech Clump

    Rockm, I don't see what could have been done different... there were not many small roots to keep and I didn't think I was losing much with the cut I made... Live and Learn .... I Hope you are wrong .. :confused: Thanks for your input .....

    2018 Crabapple or Bradford Pear Collection

    When I was in the woods last Saturday I saw this tree and liked the small white flowers and leaves were not too large. I really did not know what it was but thought I would give it a try. My guess is Crabapple or Bradford Pear .... well after I got home I realized that it was in bloom to have...

    2018 Beech Slab

    Thanks for your replies. After digging the small one last Saturday in the other thread, I realize this would probably be too much. As you have said no telling what the roots are like, I will keep watching it for now

    2018 - Beech Clump

    So I listened to your advice, I borrowed a reciprocating saw and went back Saturday. It is a small saw and used 1 full battery and some of the spare, I would have never gotten this without it. When I got home I recharged the battery and cut the bottom, and potted it. I look forward to working...

    2018 Beech Slab

    I have been looking at this clump or slab whatever the correct name is, for a couple of years. If you look close you can see all the trees are melted together. It is pretty large and will take something to get it out. I want to wait until I have been successful with another collected Beech. I...

    2018 - Beech Clump

    "Akso,when I see beech trees it tells me there should be hornbeam nearby. The hops will be growing in the same area and American hornbeam will be where the ground is a little wetter." Mike, hornbeam sound nice... I will have to check, there is a small stream that I was going to yesterday but...
