    What’s this lump on my new juniper?

    I bought a juniper yesterday and found a couple lumps at the trunk. Are these galls or just callouses or something entirely different? Thanks in advance

    Foundling Juniper (Juniperus virginiana??)

    Hi Everyone, I was walking my dogs through a local park yesterday and came across a downed oak tree. We’ve had a lot of rain and high winds lately. When the oak fell it uprooted some other plants at its base. This Juniper (at least I think it’s a juniper, possibly juniperus virginiana from...

    Juniper 'Old Gold' Styling and Progression

    I'm going to document the progression of an Old Gold Juniper in this thread. After staring at it for a year and a half, I think I understand why there are so few threads on this cultivar on here. Anyhow, July of 2019 I came across this tree at a local HD and I liked the trunk and what I could...

    Yamadori Juniper

    Hey Bonsai Nuts! Well, I had a pop up opportunity to collect this big Juniper I found in a local field last night. Had to get it now. I've read a couple non bonsai articles that best time to collect Junipers for transplanting is in the fall before the first freeze. I've also read here that...

    Juniper Score!

    Saw a neighbor digging up his yard and asked if he was saving the juniper on the edge of the construction zone. He said no and he preferred small trees like Japanese maples. Ding ding ding! I bought a blood good JM last fall for nothing at a close out sale. It was not a good bonsai investment...

    Unhealthy Shimpaku

    Any idea as to why my oldest shimpaku isn't doing as well as my other Shimpakus? I water it maybe 1 to 2 times a week minus rain fall. There are 2 other shimpakusaround it that are deep green and healthy. Im slightly inexperienced with evergreens and can't figure out why.

    You be the judge. Blue Pfitzer Juniper

    Sup Nuts. Thought I’d have a little fun with this one. I’ve always done as I pleased in terms of styling, but I thought I’d open the floor on this Blue Pfitzer Juniper I bought for $30. Purchased this one just over a month ago. And all I did was run a few skewers through the dense root ball...

    Over or under watering...?

    So I think one of the recent heat waves (113-117*) and smoke in the air (El Dorado Fire) had me over watering for a while. But now I can’t tell if I am i over watering or this is from previous under water from the sudden heat. This is happening to two of four of my junipers. One that is not...

    Juniper wiring tips? Guidelines? Rules of thumb? Personal spins?

    I’m pretty much new to wiring junipers... I mean I’ve done it, but I’ve never really known what I’m doing. And I’ve really only started taking the practice more seriously this year. I have a number of cuttings from the last 2 years and a few of them have grown enough to start working on - or at...

    Yamadori Western Juniper WIP

    I collected this Juniper from a cutting job I was on last year. Suggestions welcomed for design ideas. Planning on the first wiring next year to give this a full 2 year recovery period from collection. My initial thoughts are to lean it for a repot angle change and wire it into a wind inspired...

    Is My Juniper Bonsai Ok?

    Hi all, I received my bonsai around Christmas time. I have been trying to water it just enough so that it doesn’t get too wet (usually about once a week or so.) The tree seems to be doing alright as there is new growth on the side facing the window. However, the side not facing the sun is...

    Western Junipers

    I have 3 western junipers that I am not in love with. Some may call them “Yamadori” but I don’t know if they are worth calling them that. They are all 3-5 years from collection. I will see if there is any interest here then off to FB. They will be $20 to ship each. I’ll take JWP or known...

    Juniper dying! Help

    So I bought this juniper about a month ago and I attempted my first wiring on a bonsai. I accidentally completely cracked the trunk and it split off. I did a completely horrible job, and other parts of the tree have turned purple, and now crispy and brown. I sealed the breaks with wood glue, as...
