    Early repotting Satsuki Azaleas

    This one's foliage does not look good at all. I keep other Azaleas and even though they are still dormant, their foliage is mostly green and healthy looking.

    Chinese elm is dying, need help!

    Submerge it in a bucket of water for at least 10 minutes. If it's currently green it should recover. Repot in spring or slip pot it into a bigger pot. You must keep it in a sunny room and move it outside when it warms up a bit.

    I.D. this problem!

    If the above picture represents the entire Trident maple tree, then what I would do is defoliate, spray with fungicide and follow the manufacturers recommendations for spraying. I believe most fungicides are to be used every 10 days or so. I spray all my maples with Daconil as soon as they...

    Early repotting Satsuki Azaleas

    Hello everyone. As a rule of thumb we are supposed to root prune and repott Azaleas after flowering right? What are the consequences of repotting before they flower like in early spring? Will the tree flower anyway? The reason that I ask is because I bought an Azalea from someone that wasn't...

    Living in Japan?

    All I can say Is that I've been selling pots for years. I've been buying out collections, estate sales and even brought some Chinese pots from China itself. You might see a pile of junk from your lack of experience, but in that particular pile itself I see at least 2k profit. And there's dozens...

    Large elm cutting

    Hello everyone. Just wanted to know what is the largest cutting that you were able to grow?

    Growing a tree from a stake cutting.

    I was on youtube the other day and came across this video of a man cutting real thick branches from a regular sized elm tree. He would defoliate them completely and stick them in bonsai soil and a couple of months later they would start to bud and at that point you would have what seemed to be a...
