    Differences Between Japanese and European Beech?

    Everything that Bill wrote i agree. i want to add that both are NOT really hardy in a bonsai pot. Where I live there are tens of thousands of large European beech which survive every winter. The same species in a bonsai pot without some frost protection will die. This is because the tree is only...

    Frequency of repotting

    That's true. Collected old conifers I repot ONLY for artistic reasons to get them into the right pot in the right position. After that I leave them alone for ten years and more. Because it is not necessary to repot and would be silly because of risking the tree again. PREREQUISITE is coarse ...

    Frequency of repotting

    exactly! Repot only when necessary. Often it is not necessary for many years. Repotting and cutting roots is NOT good for the tree, it is like taking away half of your blood. That is NOT good for you!

    EUROPEAN HORNBEAM

    This could be an image of a Fairy Tale Bonsai. it does not even try to be beautiful, it does not even know what that is. But it certainly knows what it means to be genuine and impressive and what the soul of a tree is. Naturalistic Bonsai want to be beautiful and are, they are also natural, but...

    Are you a bouger?

    I am not really preserving the deadwood much. the deadwood on broadleaved trees only stay for a certain number of years. Whatever you do to preserve it will not help at one point. So I just enjoy it as long as it is three and then there will be a hole. After that I enjoy the hole. This bougie...

    Jennifer Price in Michigan Sept. 15th

    She has done the very first step for these stumps. The result is a rather clear design which can be called reasonable. The next step can be done by someone less experienced. Do you understand it now? She certainly is not the first one to have done such things.

    Should it be called "bonsai"? Article in the ABS journal

    I posted it as I did because Saimir had asked the questions as he did and as shown. He did not ask me abut American bonsai but about the usage of the word bonsai in general.

    Jennifer Price in Michigan Sept. 15th

    And here I was wondering when Jennifer sent this picture and talked about Michael, the potter. I don't know a potter called Michael. well, now it turns out to be sorce, the famous potter. this makes more sense. And Jennifer has no clue about sorce. She does not know whether this man makes sense...

    Beech (Sylvatica) & Hornbeam (Betulus) Thread Grafting

    I have not done a threadgraft on a beech, because it was never necessary for me. I think it shold be quite easy. All one would have to know is whather a speicies can be airlayered easily. If that's the case then a threadgraft is a very good bet. This does not mean that a threadgraft should not...
