    Bedding Trees

    I have quite a few small trees I took as saplings a few years ago and potted them in various grit mixes. They are doing great but are getting too big (and there are too many) to keep potting up, I simply cant make that much grit. I want to put them in the ground for a few years to let them...

    Hi all, I have a dwarf jade, it is my first succulent. I picked it up in December, and its above ground portion has been growing steadily ever since, despite the winter slow down. However, today I accidentally knocked its pot and spilled out most of its soil. I noticed looking inside the pot...

    Excellent Nebari (Surface root) technique

    I've always been curious. How do you create this excellent nebari? I know techniques that include placing a tile underneath the tree and force the nebari to grow outwards. Is that the technique that produces the attached result? http://nichigobonsai.com/2012/04/12/korean-bunjae-museum-part-2/
