    Spruce Backbudding

    Well it would appear that I've managed to get my Blue Spruce to backbud, but only on one branch. Its worth noting, I didnt do anything special and I wasnt trying to get it backbud either. Do you think these buds will mature and open up this season? I see smaller buds forming on the hardened off...

I've been attempting to grow three seedlings which I took out of the "wild" (if you can call around my neighborhood wild), all of which are native subalpine/alpine trees.

    Indoor Bonsai

    Have any or you read Brooklyn Botanic Garden's book "Indoor Bonsai", published 2002? I'm curious the thoughts of the membership here and experiences of people growing indoors, especially those growing year round. I read the book about a year ago via my local library, then recently picked up...

    My Ficus Microcarpa

    High: 27 width: 38 Work in progress. I live in north Texas, weather is unstable. It's too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter for this tropical tree. I have to keep it out door but in shade in summer and indoor in winter close to a bright window. It's been working well for me...
