    Should I trim these Crape suckers to redirect energy?

    Hello everyone, I have attached a photo of 2 Crape Myrtles I have collected a little less than a month ago.

    Is there any hope for budding?

    Potential Buds on White Pine Bonsai?

    Hello all, I have a white pine grafted onto a black pine base. I believe the variety I have is Vanderwolf's Pyramid. Apologies if I spelled that wrong. Anyway, I am trying to get this tree to back-bud, as when I bought it last year it was youngish and had that typical lion's tail...
