    Is Prunus mume the best flowering fruit tree for bonsai?

    I have been looking into Prunus species for bonsai and can only find information on Prunus mume and sometimes Prunus serrulata. I understand that oftentimes the most common species is used for a reason, and that Prunus mume is more hardy to disease than some other species. But is it really that...

    Ground-layering to get rid of grafts

    Hey guys, I recently came across two articles, that, if I understand them correctly, state you can use ground-layering to remove grafts from 1. JWPs (https://www.evergreengardenworks.com/rootgraf.htm) and 2. Prunus mume (https://ibonsaiclub.forumotion.com/t8646-grafting-bonsai-prunus-mume)...

    Kadebe's Prunus Mume

    Two months ago I planted three Prunus Mume. My plan for these trees: - All three have a tourniquet - In 2022, work the roots for the first time, place them in a pond basket and dig them back into the ground. - Shaping and pruning at appropriate times - In 2024, working on roots and perhaps...

    What to do with this ume nebari?

    Hello everyone, I have a question that maybe the community here can help me figuring out. I realised that the nebari of my prunus mume -which I thought it was just one solid piece- is actually made by two separate "units" (I don't know either calling them trunks or roots). Here's a photo of...

    Orange/brown spots on Prunus Mume

    Hello Bonsai people, I'm writing to you in order to understand if what I see on the bark of my Prunus Mume is ok or should I be worried. I purchased the tree one month ago and the bark was exactly like this; I inquired about it, out of curiosity (and ignorance) and the seller told me it was...

    My Prunus Mume is begging for your help (again!)

    The story is I was never really convinced this Ume could stay the way it was when I got it. Many of you helped me out with good suggestions last year, unfortunately airlayering it is out of question as it is almost impossible with Prunus. So today I woke up decided to chop it down (it's winter...

    Prunus Mume curling leaves (Summer here)

    My Ume after flowering beautifully last winter had a very fast growth rate in Spring. Now it's middle of the summer in the Southern hemisphere and its leaves are curling and some (not all) are showing holes, like insect bites. It's on a bench, outside with other bonsai and none show the same...

    To bury or not to bury?

    I have this Ume with a twisted lower trunk which I don't like. If I bury part of this trunk to hide it will it be bad for the health of the tree?

    Nursery with prunus mume

    Hey guys! I was curious if anyone had any leads on a nursery that sells prunus mume ‘Omoi-no-mama’ seedlings or cuttings? Other white flower varieties too. I contacted camforest but they don’t have any and don’t plan on getting them anymore and currently Brent at gardenworks doesn’t have that...
