    What is killing my Yaupon Holly.....?

    Of the 4 I dug up a few years ago this is the only one left.....The others died of the same thing. The leaves turn brown and die and it seems to happen almost overnight. I tried neem oil and fungicide on the others and nothing worked. Long time no post.... Brian

    Carving is a lot harder than it looks....

    Atleast I didn't start on a great piece of stock...I only use a chainsaw and an angle grinder with a flap disc. If I'm going to keep doing Bonsai I need to join a club. After I picked a front I marked out where I was going to make my cuts but somehow I ended up with the carved section directly...

    Drastic cutback on a Yaupon holly....?

    All my collected Yaupon's need to be repotted, I got this one finished over the weekend. I went ahead and did a drastic cutback as well. The training pot was full of roots. One down two to go. I'll tackle another one this weekend, I'm not sure I will cut it back near as heavy as I did the...

    What's the chance they will live....?

    I dug 2 azaleas this past weekend.....I know wrong time of year but the bulldozer is going to level the whole place on the 17th of this month so I figured I would give them a chance. The digging was easy. It's been over a year since I have done any collecting, that last was a large bald cypress...

    I finally got to repot my juniper in it's new homemade concrete pot....

    Work has been kicking my ass...More OT than I care to do....But today I got a break in my schedule and repotted my juniper I dug about 2 years ago into the concrete pot I made last fall. It had a great root system so I expect it will do just fine. I didn't do any styling, I'll save that till...

    Ity all started right after I submitted a link to the "Bonsai Links".....I have run every malware/spyware I have and it's still doing it...A quick google search of the site I'm keep getting directed to seems to be a problem on quite a few message boards right now....I haven't ran across a fix...

    Collecting landscape bald cypress....?

    I have to get it by next weekend, any chance it will live or am I wasting my time....? I live in the North Ga area. They were planted from seedlings 10 years ago. Even if it will live does it look like it would be worth the effort....? Brian

    Went by Plant City Bonsai today....

    On our way back from trout fishing....Had a nice conversation with Steve and looked around for awhile. Bought a small pre-bonsai trident maple to play with come spring....Yea I know it will take lots of time and work but that is OK....It was cheap and I need to learn about them before spending...

    One lone bloom....

    My new azalea surprised me with one lone bloom....It has put on lots of new growth since I cut it back. I wasn't sure if it would pull thru or not and it still might not make it, I'll have to protect it a little more during the winter because of all the new growth that hasn't hardened off yet...

    Large concrete pot design.....

    I have read a few post about making concrete pots and have decided to try my hand at making a large one for my juniper. This one will be 15” X 19” X 3 ¾” inside dims. Simple design and it will be very heavy but I do not move this juniper around much anyway. Below is the juniper in it’s training...

    Got a nice little Wakaebisu Azalea at Lowe's.....

    Stopped by the Canton store because I haven't looked thru their stock in a few months and found a nice little single trunk Azalea. Other than cutting the lip off the plastic container and brushing away about an inch of dead leaves I haven't done anything to it.....It is probably too late this...

    Translucent greenhouse panels.....?

    Looking to use some translucent roof panels on the shed I just built and would like some advise on what type to use. Lowes has 3 different kinds with prices ranging from $20 a sheet to $30 a sheet. All of those seem real thin and made from some kind of plastic, they don't carry any made from...

    Variegated boxwood....

    Atleast I think that is what they are called....It looks about like a typical green boxwood except it has yellow edged on the leaves....Anyway the neighbor across the street was taking a chainsaw to the ones in his front yard so I collected one of the stumps....It has basically no foliage left...

    I'm going out of town for 3 days......I hope I'm covered....?

    This simple system is only for when we are out of town....It's ugly and only a crutch but I think it will do the job for 3 or 4 days with the help of my kid....He will water the foliage and check to make sure the automatic system is working. I got (2) 55 gallon drums for free.....Spent $3 at...
