    Collecting Hazards

    Figures. I lived in Wyoming for 16 years. All I saw was antelope. Lots of antelope! Awesome pictures. I would have been somewhat freaked out.

    West Coast Storm

    We need the rain. It started again today. I don't need the wind though. I've had my plants out enough to get water, then they have to go back under the patio. Supposed to keep raining and blowing all week.

    Outdoor table ideas?

    So, I am a woodworker as well as an aspiring bonsai fanatic. Has anyone seen, used, wanted, dreamed, drooled over any outdoor display areas? I have a table I am using, but it's my fish cleaning table, and well, I need to use it for fish. I need to build a table for my trees, and would love to...

    Picked up my first "project" today

    It does help, Rick. It's just a $5 tree, but I don't want to ruin it. The foliage is super thick on one side, so I know that has to be trimmed back. I'm having a hard time picturing a design for it. I guess that's part of being a beginner!

    Picked up my first "project" today

    Thank you Beth. I was reading basically what you said. They are slow to grow also. I haven't cut anything yet. Its a bushy mess, and I don't know where I want to go with it. So I'm going to spend a few days looking at it.

    Picked up my first "project" today

    I was at home depot for paint, and they had boxwood on sale. I paid $5 for this. The nebari has potential, I think. Being new, I'm not sure when to start cutting it back. It has new buds on it, and none are open, if that helps any.

    Thanks for the tips everyone. My wife bought it at the commissary on base. The soil leaves a lot to be desired. I think the glue from the rocks seeped in. I had to break up the top layer. I only water when needed, and not on a schedule. The soil looks dry in this photo, but I can assure...

    I did not consider winter being near. We do not get cold here. Lows of 55 for the most part.

    I live on Vandenberg AFB, near Lompoc and Santa Maria. California. I'm sure I will buy more than a book. But, I can kid myself for now. The juniper just hasn't had the same color the past few days. As soon as I got it, I removed the glued in rocks. I really wanted to repot it, but most...

    Hi everyone. Just wanted to check in real quick. I'm trey. I live in zone 10B. A few months ago, I got very interested in picking up this hobby. I did some reading online, but didn't buy any books. I decided to wait for some reason. Then my wife picked me up a juniper from the...
