    When to Trunk Chop?

    So I have a little cork bark JM that I picked up from Brent at Evergreen Gardenworks. I'm thinking it's going to need a trunk chop due to how far up the first branching starts. I'm not sure air-layering will provide much and not even sure I can do successfully with it being this young. I've read...

    Japanese Maples in Australia

    To whom this may concern, I was wondering on how it is possible to grow Japanese Maples in places like Brisbane, Australia, where the temperature never really drops down low enough to induce the natural, required dormancy period that Japanese Maples need to survive. Yet, I have found a couple...

    Cut-Below-The-Graft Experiment

    I'm sure this has been done many times, but here's the idea: I got a couple weird Japanese maple varieties on clearance at a garden center. Both were grafted and both had long whips of the rootstock extending just below the graft. Last year I cut them below the graft so that the long whip...
