    Alaskan Birch stick in pot

    It's another newbie stick in pot thread. I'm bored, I post stuff. Sorry not sorry I dug something like 8 birch this spring all looking something like this of various sizes, more or less roots and no branches. Just experimenting with what I can get away with and what I can expect from future...

    New to bonsai. I think I have a problem...

    So, I've been lurking the forum for a while now and figured I should finally make a post so, here goes something. I had no idea growing trees in pots would become so addictive. This spring I started plucking little trees out of parking lots and off the side of the road. I quickly moved on to...
