    Mugo pine choice for niwaki?

    Hello! I would like to train a niwaki specimen on a garden slope into a shape resembling “semi cascade,” with about a width of 1.5 m (4-5 feet). Does anyone have a sense of whether I would benefit from either the vigor of the species Mugo pine, or instead by choosing a cultivar that more...

    A Rescued Mugo pine... found its home :)

    Last summer I found a mugo pine thrown in a corner lot here in my area. It was maybe used as a hedge and the owner might have dug and threw it, hoping that the trash collector would clean it. Luckily a bonsaist came to rescue it... :) I was so glad that it had a small rootball that was intact...

    What is this problem with my Mugo Pine?

    I got this mugo pine in early summer and haven’t really touched it except for raising its level in the pot. I have noticed that some of it’s needles turn brown at the ends. I am guessing it is a fungus so I will start spraying with fungicides in spring along with my Japanese Black Pine, but does...

    Should I take it home?

    I found this mugo at a local nursery and would have posted it on the Train septin Vance was sayin some pretty important stuff and I didn't want to interrupt the direction of that was going in. This tree is obviously leggy and I have no idea what's going on under the surface, but it has a lot...

So far I have ripe cones from what I believe to be: Bosnian pine, Mugo, a glaucus Scot's pine, and a green Scot's pine. I'm trying to stick with species that are easily...

    Mugo 'Varella': When to the first hard/formative pruning

    So, I have been reading and re-reading Vance Woods article/write-up on mugos, and I have a question, that, by my reading, is not directly addressed in this otherwise absolutely excellent piece. I bought two mugo-pines, nursery stock, of the variety 'Varella' (according to the nursery), last...
