    Redwood/Giant Sequoia repotting?

    Hello. I was hoping i'd be able to get some advice on if now is too late to repot a Redwood or a Giant Sequoia. I'm hoping to stop by my local nursery within the next week and see if they have any young stock of one of the species. I have seen the Giant Sequoia there in the past with roots...

    Coastal Redwood in Texas

    Curious if anyone has experience with these trees in Texas or similar area and could share insight on care tips and all. Have the opportunity to possibly get one, but want to make sure it can do well here first. As far as I can tell, temperate range matches pretty closely, just a lot less humid...

    California Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens Soquel) question re: potting up

    Hello Nuts, I just purchased a 3 foot redwood sapling (1-gallon) from my local nursery with the intention of training it into bonsai eventually (after 3-5 years of uninhibited growth). The plan was to just water and feed until dormancy, then pot-up. But I checked the roots today and this poor...

    Dawn Redwood Clean Up

    So as per a previous post, I picked up 4 'Matthaei Broom' Dawn Redwoods from a local nursery. I wanted 2 originally but after speaking to the owner she offered me a 4 for 3 as she'd had them for years and wanted to get rid. Today I cleaned them up, removed some whorls and a lot of problem...

    Bonsai @ Kew Gardens

    Hello, I recently visited Kew, Royal Botanical gardens in the UK, Richmond. Website. They had a very small greenhouse with Bonsai in, from around the world, so I of course took many pictures and 2 videos (for a bit more of a 3D look). These were very excellent trees, in my opinion. There's a...
