The Flying Dragon arrived... oh I set my calendar to work it in a month. (I do acclimate my trees...and practice what I preach.) Photos once guy wires and such applied to show before and after on a thread for it... 🥰

And my willow leaf...also acclimating. Very pleased with both which arrived today.

Hi guys, new here! Is this the thread where we shamefully post what we spend half our salaries on?

This sucker cost me, oh, 500 euros after customs and import taxes.

But it came with no pot, so of course, I had to order a pot for it (for 300 or so euros, shipping included)

Please someone tell me I'm not insane 😅

Imports cost more...but tend to be worth the upcharge fees. 😎

Emergency repot last night. Change of angle and vision. And to hoping that the broken trunk will budd out a little here and there. Bad moment for this maltreatment, as it had been repotted in winter, so had little roots already.

Sorted the damage out with the seller who can decide how to deal with the shipping compagny.

Bugger, that sucks. Hope it recovers well for you. Glad you were comfortable with the sorting out with the seller already. *Looks like a bud on that lower branch...so that is hopeful!

I'm itching to throw guy wires on this Flying Dragon. But, I will allow it to acclimate a month prior to work. This is the first time I've itched from impatience...Because I see a tree within the material...just needs sorted out. It's from SUNNY Florida...and we are seeing another cold spell move through NE Ohio. So it's in the greenhouse under lights staying warmer than it is outside. All trees move inside the greenhouse tonight. A chance for frost. I'm really wanting spring... I did get three days on the bench without the dance. So yay for that. The up coming five days...it's the dance for me.

I bought these two trees, an Amur maple and a salix integra, plus I received this tool set I ordered on amazon. Pretty satisfied with the tools, for the trees, we'll see how they grow hoping I don't destroy them. I'm planning to pot the Salix on a bonsai pot around October, based on some research, seems like it's the best moment to repot them.
