    Confused tree

    I know it's a little unconventional for bonsai, but my Henry Lauder's walking stick is a little confused about the time of year. It's budding out.

    Larch color

    Hey all. I have a question about larch color. Attached are a couple that I got last year. I have no experience with this variety. The bigger one pictured is Japanese larch and the smaller, fuller one is American larch. The Japanese one is much lighter and not as developed. Is that common?

    First re-pots of the season

    First re-pots of the season. The first one is a Dwarf Ginko in an "Iker" pot, and the other one, although unconventional for bonsai, is a Harry Lauder "Walking Stick". Leaves are too big But I thought I'd try it in a bonsai pot just for fun.

    Japanese barberry (Berberis thunbergii)

    I picked one of these up late last fall at a garden center that had an unusual fat, tapering trunk. Having never had one before I'm curious about it waking up and beginning to bud. With a lot of the leaves left on it from last year, it's hard to identify the buds swelling. In addition, should...

    European Larch #14

    Probably the best advise I've heard from Mr. Pall................."I would not do this. i would only wire a larch in April/march before the green is out. Otherwise you commit two insults at once. The rule is - only one insult at a time".

    K9 pests

    These two monsters nearly destroyed one of my trees this morning. I'd be interested to hear how you all prevent your dogs from getting to your trees. These guys, when standing on their hind legs, can look me in the eye so getting them up on a bench is not the answer. Thanks in advance for your...

    scotch pine advise

    Yep. That's the one Neil. Soil should be fine. It's in Hadite (expanded shale). Literati seems to be the natural choice. Good to hear from you Neil.

    Over watering or under watering - Portulacaria Afra

    In my experience with these they aren't crazy about being moved around much either. Find a good place and leave them there for awhile. Till healthy anyway.

    My little boxwood

    I love the white pots with these, but I do like the one you chose too Judy. I repotted mine last spring and am hoping to work it into a smaller pot too.
