    Japanese larch repotting question

    I have a Japanese larch that has opened its buds earlier than my other trees over the past few weeks. Is it too late to repot? Just waiting on a delivery to repot this into a bigger grow box. Thanks for your advice

    I'm the New Caretaker for an Old Larch Grove, looking for insight.

    Today I became the 3rd caretaker for an old larch grove that is apparently 60+ years old. It has been owned by two members of my local Bonsai Society, the last of which for 20 years. I would love to learn all I can about larches, I have always loved them as landscape trees, as well as anything...

    So during lockdown I have rediscovered my hobbie for bonsai. I had a ficus for around a year and managed to kill it. They say you need to kill your first bonsai tree to really get the bonsai passion. Anyway, I collected this Larch tree from a local seller more recently, I’ve chopped him down to...

I was planning to plant them in 4” pots using a modified Boon mix for a couple of years then plant over a tile and using the escape method to gain girth. This...

    Western Larch

    I am fairly new to the art of bonsai and was seeking advice as to when to do everything with this Western Larch which was given to me. When should I prune it, should I transplant it into a bonsai pot right now or wait for spring, when should I wire it, what soil mix should I use for it, any...

    Larch bud dieback.

    Hello all! I bought some field grown larch earlier this season and I'm having some issues. Theyve been slow to open thanks to our weather and late summer here in Toronto. Now that they are showing some vigor, I am seeing some buds give out. I've had 3 or 4 buds turn a brown/yellow and die...

    Possibly possible

    Hi all Saw this little larch up for grabs and loved the trunk thickness and can imagine the main leader fitting nicely after a bit of work making the transition from the main trunk smoother. As a enthusiastic newbie I don’t know if this will heal or even if it’s possible. Any help much...

    Deadwood Chinese larch

    Eastern Larch, American Larch or Tamarack (Larix laricina)

    They are native to the western mountainous part of the state of Maryland. Does anyone know if one can survive and, hopefully, thrive in my eastern part of the state (USDA zone 7a/7b) at sea level? I would like to try one as bonsai.

    Japanese Larch ?

    I was given this tree as a present about 3 years ago. It was supposedly a 3 year old bonsai from a mail order company. After removing about 20 cm from the top and some heavy thinning out some root training then repotting i was left with this.
