    Watering Ponderosa through the winter

    I got my Ponderosa in June of this year. In all the research I've done, I've pretty much watered it every day when it hasn't rained. Now that it is going dormant, Should I continue this practice? It's in very well draining inorganic soil. Thank you for your time.

    Pines in winter care?

    This was taken from facebook as a reply to someone asking about Ponderosa's in zone 8a. Is there truth to this thinking? "if Dormant for a short period, straight shade on the north side, is beneficial, rather than detrimental. Here, in winter, the sun is almost horizontal and everything...

    Thoughts on my first Ponderosa

    I received this ponderosa from Andy Smith yesterday. I have it in slight morning sun for the next week or two, after that it will get 6-8 hours of mostly full sun. My main question is, when can I start fertilizing the crap out of it? I have both Bio gold and Green Dream on hand. It was collected...

    Would you dig this?

    I believe it's a winged elm. It's currently very tall, but I just love the rugged trunk. It has a little bend in it from growing around the old log. I'm not sure what the base looks like. Thanks,

    New tree from Brent Pinus thunbergii 'Hayabusa'

    Got it yesterday. Today, it went into my raised grow bed. Planted it deep in hopes of it ground layering itself. Anything I can do to encourage that?

    How do you deal with deadwood on JBP

    One of my pines has a ten-jin that I'd like to keep. At a recent workshop with Bjorn, he said that black pines shouldn't have bleached white (lime sulfur) deadwood. I have another JBP that has a nice shari I'd like to accentuate as well. How do you treat the deadwood on JBP?

    Little help please

    Just a little concerned about my trident. I defoliated it almost 2 weeks ago and it's been sitting in a spot that only gets morning sun. So I don't think it's leaf burn. What's up with these leaves? Thanks for looking,

    How would you repot this?

    Having just received this. I know It shouldn't be repotted till next spring, and it won't be. It is in a 2 gallon nursery pot and probably has been for some time. I'm just trying to get a jump on planning for it. Also, would this pot work? Thank you in advance.
