Hi All,
We're preparing for retirement within the next year or so. If the company leaves me alone as they have been, I stay for a little longer. IF they start to break my balls (as we say), then I'll "pack-it-in" sooner. LOL...

Anyway... That being said, over the past few weekends, I picked-up some really nice future Bonsai pieces.
The first one is a Japanese Maple (about 1 1/2" or so at the very base, with nice movement), that I purchased from a small nursery out here on Eastern Long Island, for only $20! Yup, $20.
Not certain of the exact variety though. Advice welcomed.

The next bunch of trees came from a different nursery.
These I actually dug-out ("Nursery-Adori") and purchased from our local Bonsai place.
UNFORTUNATELY they are closing their doors, but HOPEFULLY starting-up again eventually.
I also received a fantastic deal on this lot of trees as well, along with about 10 more pots and humidity trays.
Being that I have slight OCD tendencies, I couldn't decide which tree or trees to dig & buy, so I dug-out and purchased ALL OF 'EM! 10 in all, and only one was already dug-out and potted.
I had a heck of a time digging several of them out, ESPECIALLY that large Trident, the one with my hand in the picture. It's about 3 1/2" at the base of the trunk.
But nonetheless, I had a BLAST! I haven't gotten THAT muddy in a while! LOL...
Time is of the essence here, as I don't know how much longer the doors will be open. Currently, they're only open for a few hours on the weekends. I already purchased a ton of assorted pots from them as well.

The rest of the trees are I believe Carpinus Turczaninovii (Korean Hornbeam), as one of them was tagged, but not the rest.
Advise appreciated.

I know the photos and their locations aren't the greatest though, as I'm still under construction of my greenhouse (approx. 80% completed), replacing that fence, AND still working a bunch of hours. I can and will post more pics, as I move forward.

As always, I SINCERELY appreciate everyone here and your guidance!!!

Ben

Admins,
Please feel free to move this thread to the Trees section.
I realized it after the timer ran out.
Thx,
Ben

Not TOO much left, but some folks could make good use of some of the goodies that are left.

Just 2 benches of Bonsai trees left outside under the shade cloth, and 1 greenhouse with some smaller trees in it.
Some nice large trees in the back, that'll need to be dug-out & potted.
Quite a few small & medium size pots left.
They're only there from about 11:30-2:30 on Sat. & Sun..
Big discounts though, and worth a look if you live nearby.
I'm in Centereach, so it's pretty close by.

The ones you got that were dug out, did they did them out for you or did you bring a shovel? LOL?

LOL... It was all on ME.
I went prepared with plenty of tools though, I knew what I was getting into. LOL...
I asked if they minded if I walked around the back lot, they said sure no problem go for it.
NOW, I "just" need to keep those trees alive.
I put them in semi shade on the side of my greenhouse for now.

Yea they're liquidating everything.
I even purchased 2 brand new shade cloths with grommets from them, while I was there.
