    Winter Storage removal SurpriseS

    With the DLS change I had about an hour of daylight left after work and gym. I figured I would take my trees out of the small house that is really for our well filter. I rebuilt it a few years ago with transparent roof and tall enough for some trees. We have a light that hangs from a bungee cord...

    Collected Beech 3-7-20

    While on our property this weekend, I got this, not much to the trunk but did get a fair amount of roots. Couple years ago RockM told me Beech do not like drastic root cut back when collecting, the one he told me about died. So I hope this will have a better chance. I had about 2 hours of day...

    Collecting Wisteria 3-7-20

    I got access to this Wisteria, there is a much larger one about 4 feet away and I think this came up it, you can see above ground roots between the 2. Seems everything I dig does not have much roots, but one big tap. This has more than some I have dug. I cut it back, I think it really...

    Looking for a Hornbeam

    A couple of years ago I collected a Beech on our land and some people made comments that there should be some Hornbeam around since there were Beech and they may be close to water. This weekend I decided to take a look Saturday afternoon, good chance to get my Dad out of the house as he enjoys...

    Azalea Collecting Options

    I have the opportunity to dig a few azalea from a home that will be sold and most likely demolished, which will most likely destroy the azalea in the process. So if my dig does not work and they die, it is not as if I wasted the tree. There are 4 places with multiple trunks coming from one...

    Brussels Spring Sale 2019

    Made a trip to Brussels this weekend for the Spring Sale. Over the years I have tried to go at least every couple of years and that is only because of the distance. If it were closer I would go much more or till I was Bonsai Broke... I think @Adair M described it as "The scale of the place is...

    2019 Collecting Something2

    This is the second tree I collected yesterday, this was the largest pot I had to put it in. If it goes well I will build a box for it next year. I was out of the turface and bark mix so I used this gray stone (somewhat porous) mix for an older tree. I realize the chance of bringing something in...

    2019 Collecting Something1

    Made a trip to our property yesterday to look for trees to collect. It's been cold last week and my Dad could not get out to do much so I figured it would be a good day for him as the land is his old home property. I realize it is a bit early to collect but with my limited time on the weekends...

    Mailbox Bonsai

    I have been watching this tree for the past 20 years or more. It is on the street my parents live on and even before I worked with bonsai I thought it was being cut to be some type of bonsai. I knew the owners of the home but not very well. I saw the wife one day at the local school that I was...

    Rained here Thursday night so it messed up my plans for Friday work around the house (have some days off). So I figured get my dad out of the house and try the new reciprocating saw he gave me for Christmas. Did not have a lot of time by the time we got to our property and it really seems warm...
