Wasn't sure we're else to post this and well I am still new so... Gonna be hitting a nursery tomorrow for somethings and wanted to know some of the best conifers/evergreens for formal upright, informal and forest to keep a eye out for. Thanks!
There may be some hesitation because the perception is someone who won’t do the research probably won’t do the work required with this hobby. The next bones to throw you will be labeled: watering, feeding, pruning, wiring, pest problems, and dying bonsai. All of these bones are on this site, free for you to find and try.Anybody wanna throw me a bone here?
Thanks yeah I really like the bald cypress especially for a formal upright. Seems like it thrives in my climate. That's one I've actually have had my eye on just haven't Cam across one yet. Thanks for the input I'll check out those junipers as wellThere are a few junipers that I know people from Florida use.
Parsons and procumbens come to mind maybe even shimpaku. Strangely enough they work way up here in Michigan.
As for pines I'm not sure. Look around your area and see if any are growing around you.
Also check out Bald Cypress.
Yeah I love the discount rack! And I agree that they normally sell what grows locally that's what I was asking what's actually trainable! Thanks for the input!If shopping nursery look in back for old/neglected interesting(usually cheaper)material. Local places likely to only sell trees for local climate.
Just because it is cheep does not mean it is a good deal. For the most part anything on the discount rack is either near death or deformed.Yeah I love the discount rack!
