    11th Floor Separatists

    Sorry for a title, but it's how it is. I'll start with my oldest Chinese elm. Mallsai... couldn't find a way to use this ugly trunk. So went ahead and did this this spring. Last week these were ready to be separated. I love manual works! ... checking roots and potting. And this is what...

    Removing air layer without foliage

    Hi, I have two air layers on different hornbeams. I made them a month ago, I already can see nice roots snaking around in the container however it is not full with them yet. The containers are just above ground, and the first branches with leaves on are about 1.5 meters above the layer. I will...

    Air Layering and Checking for Roots

    I'm trying to air layer my Japanese Maple tree and I want to check for roots. However, the person that helped me used black duck tape around the bag, so taking the tape off will tear the bag. FYI, please don't let the camera distract anyone.

    Liquidambar without branches

    I have a very old liquidambar that stopped producing low branches. How do I get more lower branches? Can it handle topping off? I can also air layer the top if the bottom will grow new branches.

    Will it die?

    So I have this fussy Leptospermum (NZTeatree) that's tall, but full of branches. One of the options I have is air layering the trunk midway instead of chopping it and throwing the top away. Two trees is doubling the fun! Again, there is plenty of foliage down and up from the possible place for...

    When to air layer?

    So I have some large pines in my tree as well as what I think is a maple which is right up against the house so it will definitely have to be taken out at some point but I was wondering when should I try to air layer it? I’ve never done it before but figured it would be a good time to try...

    Mature Elm Air Layering

    I purchased a bag of Perlite last year and was all set to go air layering. Well as we all do I didn't get around to it. This spring I have located several older elms that I have permission to do air layering on. Reading quote a few of these posts I still have a few questions. Using these...

    Large Wisteria Air layer

    Hello, I thought I would get some peoples thoughts on air layering a few parts of this large, older Asian Wisteria that my neighbour has but is very much wildly growing over my side. Neighbours will be cutting it back but anything on my side, I can do whatever with and I have some rather large...

    Shishigashira project (air layering)

    I've wanted some fancy maple cultivars, so I trekked down to "Garden World" where premium landscaping trees are sold on consignment by local growers. For $75, I got a 6' tall Shishigashira Japanese Maple in a 6 gallon nursery can. It appears to be grafted about 5" above the soil line, but it's...

    Rosemary Repoting, Is it possible??

    From everything I have read everywhere the general consensus is that its darn near impossible to repot a rosemary or cut off thick roots without loosing the plant. This is extremely unfortunate as they have amazing trunks and live veins when very old. But in saying this there has to be a...

    Shishigashira Air Layer Project

    I got this tree when I first started bonsai (last summer) from a local nursery. That was before I knew about weird grafts and long boring trunks, so this spring I tried to air layer it. I watched the Graham Potter video a couple times and then went to work. It's fall now and nothing but callous...

    Pyracantha Air Layer

    Hello, Not expecting a great deal of comments, as there isn't much to say about it yet really! This is an air layer I started nearly 10 weeks ago, and what its roots currently look like. I did worry that they aren't quite the colour of roots I was expecting but, I leave that to better minds...
