    Pinus mugo "Little Lady" 1 year update

    Just thought I'd put in an update on this tree, and made a new thread as the first one was mistakenly placed in the Junipers subsection. Here's how my Little Lady is doing: It's growing out a bit, though a hot month has browned the tips of a few needles. I've put the wires on to open it up...

    Lorax7 Mugo Pine #3 progression

    I’ve had this little mugo for a couple of years now. I think I repotted it into this blue plastic container last year. Here it is in spring 2024:

    Pinus mugo "Little Lady"

    I bought about three years ago from nursery stock when my daughter was born, and am hoping to pass this on to her when she gets older if she also develops a taste for bonsai. It probably needs some wiring now to get it into shape, but I'm happy with how the needle reduction and basic trunk...

    Mugo dev help

    Got a couple that have roots in this netted sac. Per Vance's suggested material, B&B mugo should be put in netted pot to leave alone but any idea when this should be done? Should I wait for summer for that? as most of the work with mugo seems to be in summer, just wondering if I can repot...

    Nursery Mugo #1

    Got this mugo pine back last year around summer time at Lowe's. Earlier this year I was really considering if I even wanted to spend my time trying to bonsai this guy, but figured what the hell, gives me a chance to have more experience with pines. Did my first repot with it today. Mostly went...

    Collection of various Coniferes

    My English is not to good, but I will try my best! Last year I managed to collect some Austrian Black Pine Seedlings, as you can tell, some of them are a bit bigger and some are super tiny. All of them do pretty good and they all have good healthy roots so far. I am not sure yet where I will...

    Mungo Pine Direction.

    This will be my first post ever on this forum so apologies if I'm doing it wrong! Picked up this lovely bit of nursery stock today: 1/3 of a good root flare, not in an ideal place however. Back end does not seem to have many roots near the surface at all. I have managed to turn into this...

    Pinus Mugo - way forward?

    Hi - this is my first Mugo yamadori I dug up last year and I think it's quite healthy. Come next repotting, I will pot it more straight up I guess. I thought about possible ways to go forward and wanted to ask for input (keep in mind I'm a greenhorn ;)). I'm also open to much more radical...

    Paging Dr. Mugo

    Last week I got 2 free tickets to ride the mugo train due to the generosity of a local Bnut member who had to reduce some stock due to a move. Unfortunately, a couple of weeks before I got it, the larger of the two started to get brown needles - starting on the lowest branch, but starting to...

    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...

    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...
