    Blue atlas cedar - how to collect seeds and plant them?

    I’m not sure if I’m bad at the search function on this website but I have been struggling to find detailed information about collecting and growing a bonsai from a blue atlas cedar cone/seeds. (I can’t find any retailer that will ship a live blue atlas cedar nor seeds to Sweden. Hence why I’ll...

    Cryptomeria japonica Rasen - approach

    Hi all, I recently received this Cryptomeria Japonica Rasen from a friend who gave it to me (after I helped him out with something) because it has the name "Japonica" in it, and he knows I like trees and Japanese things 😅 It's already quite tall, but I've read these CJR's grow quite...

    Thuja occidentalis from stock - cold tolerance

    Hi all! I'm a noobie here and 1 year into my bonsai adventure. I just bought an awesome white cedar, thuja occidentalis, from nursery stock and I was wondering if it is safe to leave outside for the remaining weeks of winter. It seems  really healthy as of today's date, and I would like to keep...

    Deodar Cedar shaping

    Picked up this beauty at a local nursery for an awesome price, couldn’t let it go. It’s been in the current pot for 3-4 years. Started out pretty straggly so I’ve started to clean it up although now I’m stuck on what to do next! I have 2 possibly new leaders and I’m reaching out to the more...

    Brand new lebanon, and bonsai...ist. Looking for advice.

    After searching for a plannting spot in my yard that would play well for this weeping cedar of lebanon cutting, I thought "why not bonsai, it will be beautiful and be able to exhibit that weeping feature if done right - and it won't literally ruin all the places I might put it!". The problem is...

    Cedar deodar air layer

    I've been working on a cedar deodar air layer for 1.5 years. First attempt failed when bark healed over. I reset it this spring. I checked it today and saw some roots starting. I think it's not ready for separation. It looks like it could use another year. How can I best prepare it for over...

    Once and for all — can Atlas Cedar be layered?

    Hello all, first post here. I have a Blue Atlas Cedar that I got as cheap sickly nursery stock a year and a half ago. I got it to full health last year and now have it in a pond basket coiled into quite a lovely extreme shape with some 5mm wire (cant ground grow atm). The tree is fairly young...

    Cedar training boxes?

    So I found a great mulberry stump that I want to collect come the winter. I also would like to get my Japanese maple out of its nursery pot when the time comes. I see a lot of people beginning training from collected trees and nursery pots into cedar boxes. I understand that these boxes are...

    Starting a new Blue Atlas Cedar

    I picked this up at my local Home Depot for $49.99. I’ve never worked a blue atlas because they are usually much more expensive and thought this was a good one to start with. Obviously ground grown and probably local. Yes, I did dig down as far as I could to make sure there’s no ugly surprises...

    Old Timey Cedar

    There is a tree I have seen pictures of in Yellow Stone National Park or some other famous US Park that is probably six feet across, the top is broken off and it's pretty weather beaten. I wish I could find a picture of it. That is the tree I am going for here. The front from different...

    Bonsai @ Kew Gardens

    Hello, I recently visited Kew, Royal Botanical gardens in the UK, Richmond. Website. They had a very small greenhouse with Bonsai in, from around the world, so I of course took many pictures and 2 videos (for a bit more of a 3D look). These were very excellent trees, in my opinion. There's a...
