    Yamadori Scots pine

    Last week I purchased this Scots pine. It was collected last spring in France. It's in good health, loads of buds popping up, even in the interior of the canopy. What attracted me was the nice movement in the base, deadwood and the long, elegant trunk. There are a lot of finer branches to work...

    Scots pine skipping a year of growth

    I have this scots that produced buds last year, but didn't develop candles during spring or summer. The buds thickened, some opened up a little bit, but that was it. It was dug up three years ago, styled at the end of last winter and slip-potted when the buds were just about to open. But then...

    First Collected Tree

    Hello! This is my first collected tree, a scots pine (pinus sylvestris). I found it on the edge of a cliff. I know it is not a very nice tree, especially the taper, but I thought it would be ok for me to have as a first go at yamadori. I spent an hour cleaning off the reindeer lichen and moss...

    Pinus sylvestris 'Glauca nana' project

    Today I bought a 3" trunk diameter Dwarf Blue Scots Pine nursery tree. This will be a long term project and it is my first Scots. I suspect this is grafted but I have yet to see an obvious union mark. I did a tiny bit of digging around the trunk and found field soil with some fine feeder...

    Seed project

    It's been a while since I started anything from seed, and I'm on a bit of a pine kick so I started collecting for next year. 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...

    Garden center scots pine

    Been lurking here for a couple weeks, saw the fall 2016 challenge and decided that it was now or never. This is a "green penguin" scots pine that I picked up this morning. In the nursery, it seemed like there was potential, but now I have my doubts. I like the gentle curve of the longer trunk...

    I want a Scots pine!

    I've tried looking online for a somewhat local supplier of Scots pine, but I didn't have any luck. Today on Facebook I seen a beautiful Scots pine that was posted by bonsai empire, and It struck me. There is a Christmas tree farm on the east side of town. I think I'll give them a call tomorrow...
