Hi Ben,Hi Guys
Can you help me for the form of this tree?
Thx broHi Ben,
There are plenty of great info on this website about bonsai soil. Please read everything and absorb what you need to understand the art and Horticultural needs for Bonsai.
I am only a newbie, but what I have done is listen to the masters here and learn what I need to, to improve my design skills.
As for your tree in above photo, um, you have NO low branches to build from, no trunk taper to form a believable tree.
If you don’t like this advice from me and @Cypress187, then use the search function regarding your tree species, and/or find the trunkline and first branch with what you have you most like (photo), and grow this to 2-3 feet, and make a big bonsai.
Yes! We all tend to become captive to spring repotting of everything, and the fact is you can spread out your repotting (and, I've found, collecting) into other months with no ill effect. This really helps.I do all my crapes in the summer now Zach. Like you say, they root like crazy and don't mind it at all. Also, it takes some pressure off in the spring. Not so many trees to repot.
