    The Little Hino that Could :)

    On June 20th I received a lovingly delivered Hino - They were a bit tough on it to say the least, This is the pot it was in upon arrival - After finding an always available trainer for these situations I repotted it, trimmed it as it was the right time here. It was far more full, regardless...

    Juniperus procumbens 'Green Mound' from 2015

    @sorce back in 2015 I bought this green mound and a blue mound. The blue mound I killed by leaving it in a hanging basket unattended all Winter. This one however I just took out of the 4 inch deep pot, filled an 8 1/2 inch with 5 inches of high fired slate for weight and jammed it on top of...

    Ulmus parvifolia 'Sempervirens' a few have asked in conversation

    Several people here and on the phone have asked me if the Ulmus parvifolia 'Sempervirens' Weeping needs assistance such as wires, weights etc... I was looking through a lot of pictures on the camera today and came across this picture which shows its ability to "weep" by itself. Quite opposite of...

    Goji Experiment

    I took receipt of a small Goji earilier this year. Not Bonsai but potted. It threw so much new foliage I had to stake it and hedge it back a lot. None of the growth was back buds on old wood... I waited a few weeks and it continued the same whippy growth pattern so I hedged it again a couple...

    African Sumac, Willow Rhus, Karee - Searsia lancea OUCH!

    I read up on African Sumac and came to believe they produce the same oil as Poison Oak which does not bother me the least... Well I trimmed two small ones on Saturday and discovered this Sunday - It did swell but does not itch or burn, just looks nasty in person. I guess I finally found a...

    Odd Serrisa root work progression

    I call it an odd Serissa not because it is uncommon but because most people do not consider variegated plants in Bonsai as many tend to be slow growing. I find this plant does not grow slowly in ANY aspect and it needs a lot of attention unless one wants a landscape bush :oops: I received and...

    baileyana species of Acacias

    Actually see them listed under several different names but would like to purchase one that blooms yellow flowers. Looking for a starter, young perhaps a foot or so tall. They grow fast but are on the short lived side so a younger healthy plant is preferred - Thanks in advance Grimmy

    Peach tree(s) question

    We have two Peach Trees I potted bare root Spring 2016. One is a Hale Haven and the other is a Belle of Georgia variety. Both appear just fine but we traveled for a couple of weeks and I noticed what looks odd to me unlike other fruits we grow. It appears like small flower petals of pinkish...

    Old but new

    I was happy to receive this Pietro Gardone V.T. Beretta 7.65 model 70 from Grandmother along with the story. Grandfather bought it in the early 60's and fired it once and put it in a drawer where it sat since. He hated it saying it was built "upside down" and "backwards"... I know it is a belly...

    Rhododendron 'Olga Mezitt" Northern trial...

    Had tried a lot of different types of Rhododendron here and none seemed to survive Winter even as mild as it is. In fall of 2015 I tried another and left it in its' 5 inch pot outside. Not much to look at in the Spring but it lived so I bumped it up to an 8 inch pot and although I bent it a bit...

    Toyo Nishiki question(s)

    I noticed this bud the other day and am a bit mystified. I received this clump in a 2 1/2 gallon container and as with everything else this year just growing it out testing for previous problems.

    Reclaimed the back yard, not much to go :)

    As many of you know we got hit with a bacterial infection in the soil in Spring of 2015. This place we bought was not draining properly so since then I cleaned up the infection, destroyed the lawn doing topsoil removal, and have bought nursery plants of similar species to test. A few days ago a...

    Bored enough to try a different cascade method...

    Landscape still not finished and nothing to work on so I figured I would show a way to start a cascade from a Blue Pacific Shore Juniper. As it grows I will continue to trim out the low interior growth and stake the long runners up a bit to create air movement inside. Thinking @sorce may see use...
