    What about a Pear?

    Okay, for anyone who has followed my threads knows I like to CHALLENGE you thoughts and MINDS on Bonsai.

    What about a White Oak?

    Has anybody had, have, or tried using White Oak for material? I have been training one for about 15 years now, it has a nice trunk going but I'm working on the branching and sub-branching. It's a SLOOOOOOOOOOOW process.

    White Poplar and those who dis-belive,,

    I think I've had this tree about 10 years, I got it and a few more from a Massive growth out where I work it was about a pencil thin taper at the time. I found this tree can be complicated at time, doesn't take well to pruning, like water, and could prob use almost 2 transplanting a year. They...

    White Poplar and those who dis-belive,,

    Midwest Aug. Bonsai 8/17-8/19

    Was a Great show,,, got another Great looking S. Rayner pot (like there are anything less) and seen some great trees. My only disappointment was and I guess still is the lack of material that is grown locally in the area of these shows. ie; chicago show= usda zone 5 . KJ

    Poor Mans Pot (Casserole dish)

    Not sure if you have plastic Milk boxes in Ireland, But I've heard that they can make pretty good training pots. You'll just have to use some kind of mesh for the bottom of the box, and once again I've heard that you can use a circular saw with a plywood blade put on backwards to cut the box...
