    Species that Respond Well to Styling and Repotting

    So I’m getting prepared early planning out my spring repots, soil, supplies I need to buy, etc. It got me thinking more about trees that respond well to pruning/styling and repotting the same time. This works better for some species than others, but I’d love to hear peoples experiences with...

    Question about "sweating"

    Hello! These buds look the same since November, I had to put a frost blanket on it as we have extremely cold winters. Should I put it in a plastic bag now? P.s. I'm new to bonsai so please don't be too harsh on me, I know the wires and wiring is far from good.

    Should I remove the dead leaves from my hornbeam?

    I inherited this hornbeam last year. I'd like to keep it going as long as possible, but I've absolutely no bonsai experience. The leaves turned orange over autumn and I half expected them to fall, but they didn't. Now its early spring and the leaves are still here! I can also see some small buds...

    Any experience using 'sweating techniques' indoors for i.a. Hawthorns?

    Hi all, Yesterday I collected a Hawthorn (picture will follow). Anyone has experience with the so called 'sweating technique' (by Tony Tickle) used indoors? Why I ask? I like to try it, however there will be only rain en clouds the coming weeks and sun is required to my understanding to heat...

    Bud selection on Non-decandled Black Pine?

    I have a black pine that is in the refinement stage. It was weaker than previous years this season, so I skipped decandling and allowed it to grow. The tree has filled in nicely and the energy is pretty even throughout. Many of the needle clusters have a single bud on the growing tip, but about...

    Next spring; Repot & Hard Prune?

    Hello everyone! I'm brand new to the site and to the world of bonsai. Although I have been reading and trying to learn like a maniac! I received a chinese elm a few days ago and I've been focused on geting it acclimated and getting used to the watering routine. The tree came in a really heavy...

    When bring trees out of Garage?

    Anyone around Southwest (Blacksburg) Virginia, or USDA Zone 6b give me some advice on this one? This is the first winter I've owned some deciduous bonsai trees. They have some buds and a few have started to pop out as well. I'm guessing it's probably time to bring my trees out for sunshine...

    First fertilizer of the season?

    So I have an assorted pack of deciduous prebonsai trees in their pots, they've started pushing leaves. I'm wondering, if you had pellet type fertilizer, would you put that in when the buds just start to push, or do wait until all the leaves a fully out to apply?

    I liked that pot too
