    That is a standard bamboo chopstick on the table in front of the pot.

    I need willow twigs!

    If all you are after is salicylic acid, why not dissolve an asprin tablet in a quart of water or some other amount of water. That would be a cheep way to get some.

    Forum help with an introduction for yamadori hunting? Maybe?

    A web search brings up all kinds of "backcountry". Can you be a little more specific as to what you are refering to?

    Extreme Bonsai

    If you check into it you'll find that on the same day a year earlier planes were grounded because the air was to hot for them to develop needed lift. It's nothing new, simple airplane saftey precautions.

    Eastern red cedar

    I have apparently missed something. What is "Sulfur substrate treatment" and where can I read up on it?

    Extreme Bonsai

    Thanks for the heads up Vance. I'd welcome the target rich environment. One of my long time heros, General Chesty Puller was in the Chosin Reservor during the Korean War. Funny that, in the Corps we called it the Frozen Chosin. Anyway, when told that they were completely surrounded by the...

    Extreme Bonsai

    The fact that you replied and completely understand the point of my post says it all. No one knows what the climate will bring tomorrow much less in a month or a year. Al Gore is famous for having said around 2005 that the oceans would all dry up by 2015 and now won't respond to questions...

    Repotting Japanese hemlock

    I dug up three hemlock in the mountains of Virginia yesterday. Raining. Still raining today. I dug a plug 8-12" in diameter with the tree centered in the plugs. Trunk diameter 1" and 3/4", 18" to 30" tall. Put them in plastic bags and got back home after dark, sill raining. Left them...

    Repotting Japanese hemlock

    In addition. In my experience, they don't act like pines or juniper when you handle them. They don't at all mind getting moved from ground to a pot or from pot to pot at all.

    Repotting Japanese hemlock

    My experience is with our native hemlock in North Carolina, specifically Canadian Hemlock. I have dug them year round and never had one die, so far. I dug three yamadori yesterday and am going back, rain or no rain, up in the mountains on Tuesday and get a few more of them, for a forest...

    Repotting Japanese hemlock

    Normally as the buds are just starting to open at the end of the branches. However, you missed that. Repot now and see what happens, just don't do a whole bunch of root pruning. Cutting back a couple of long winding around the pot roots should be no problem, just no wholesale cutting off roots.

    The Yamadori Thread

    This is a Winged Elm, Ulmus alata. Stands about 3 ft. tall from soil level. Collected 25Mar2017 from a high tension power line right of way in the Piedmont area of North Carolina. Collected by myself. There are several hundred of Winged Elm in this power line right of way. Eventually the...

    Emergency need of advice

    I'd put a large clear plastic bag over it and move it to an area where it gets sun (2-3 hrs.) in the morning and shade the rest of the day. You should see the inside of the bag get moisture all over it. Rig some kind of way to keep the bag off the needles. Like take a plastic porch table and...
