    Jacaranda help

    I have never seen a Jacaranda bonsai but noticed that the branches on mature trees take on a beautiful shape so maybe one day I'll be able to airlayer some if I end up in a warm country again.

    Grafting to accelerate healing of a large scar…from Kathy Shaner workshop

    I'll do this kind of graft to get buds in that area for a future branch right in the middle of the scar and I guess she also placed the grafts so she has three options in future . The tree will produce some buds on the edge of the callus but the direction and location will be wrong.

    Monster bougainvillia

    Hinoki Cypress Island

    I'll just make the stone arrangement around each island more irregular. Place some stones horizontal and arrange some so they jut out from the island .

    baobab no.1

    You can shorten the long dominant branch in Pic4 to the length of the other branches to balance the canopy. The height of the tree is good now and you can start to broaden and ramify the top.

    Your thoughts please.

    Like them all! 306 037 11 almost looks like a salt glaze but then you'll need a separate kiln for that?

    Questions for Kevin Willson

    Questions for Kevin Willson

    Hi Fore, especially on old Junipers you have to find the "lifeline" first. these are like raised "veins" that link specific branches with usually specific roots. That's why the old flaky bark is brushed away so one can find these. So initial carving is done first around these areas and over the...
