    Potting a Nursery Juniper

    Hi All, I just potted up the nursery junipers that I've been fattening up for the past 3 years from regular soil to bonsai soil. And now I'm terrified that they'll die like my first attempt at bonsai many years ago. When I moved them I only trimmed the rootball so it would fit into the pots, I...

    Juniperus × pfitzeriana 'Sea Green' — Advice, styling and progression

    Just picked up some nursery stock. I was drawn to the lean in the trunk and wanted something to practice on. I would really appreciate some advice on this tree. It‘s not an ideal candidate, but I’m wondering what people suggest I do with it. How should I go about reducing length? It had a lot...

    Would you say this trunk is twisted?

    Potential yamadori subjects. I’m after twisted trunks and I am wondering if you all think either of these trees would qualify as twisted trunks.

    Collected Redberry Juniper (Juniperus pinchotii)

    I collected another juniper today that I believed was and Ashe juniper but on closer inspection I believe it is a redberry juniper. The foliage looks a bit different and the bark is definitely not as dark as Ashe juniper. If anyone can verify ID I would appreciate it! Either way it’s a great...

    Collected Shohin sized Ashe juniper

    I’m not usually one for the smaller bonsai but when I saw this small tree while out scouting I had to have it! There’s lots of small juniper out where I collected this but very few with the great deadwood and character that this one has. Combine that with the movement it possesses and I think we...

    Juniper Informal Upright Chop - Opinions Please!

    Hey All, I have a relatively decent nursery specimen here and am contemplating a relatively hefty cut. The trunk gets fairly straight and untapered towards the top section then the leader curves downwards in a large arc that just isn't looking realistic to me. I'm thinking of chopping at the...

    Help or advice collecting Ashe Juniper this spring.

    So I was able to get permission to potentially collect trees from a pretty large piece of property near Abilene.

    Juniper care after repotting

    Hello, my friends, I just got two junipers (Juniperus horizontalis and Juniperus chinensis) and I had to repot them due to inappropriate soil. I was wondering how to process in the next days. Should I protect them from direct sunlight?
