This is my Chishio Improved, which I have been trying to improve little by little over the last 15 years. I have noticed a tendency for the tree to shed interior growth and grow much stronger on the outer areas. A way to combat this tendency is to partially defoliate the tree, removing one leaf […]

Me neither, but nevertheless, I noticed some white flecks on this trident early in the spring. They didn’t come off easily, and weren’t moving either, so I just kind of ignored them. 3/20/19, easy to see in a night shot with flash: Then on April 14, I noticed some white spots on the undersides of […]

Nebari Bonsai by Brian Vf - 2w ago

It was a great weekend working with Bjorn and Conifer Group A (catchy name, right?). It was rainy off and on, and very pleasant for June in the South to work on trees outside. Here are a few shots of some junipers (and more) from around the nursery. One of the three trees I brought […]

I collected this in South Dakota in 2013. From this exact spot, very near the line of a fire that burned in the area between my first trip there and second. You can see some of the damage in the hill across: And potted back in Iowa: In 2016, I was able to remove the […]

As the show winds down, from this (May 2018): To this: It’s time to remove the flowers, pruning to remove the branches sporting the fat-petal flowers while it’s still easy to tell which are which. Then trim it back: And lightly wire: A few weeks later and it’s filling out nicely. Fast-Forward to April 2019, […]

The bright red, strap like flowers make this a unique and beautiful cultivar. However, as a hybrid cultivar, they have a few foibles. Do you see a flower that looks a bit out of place? They tend to throw a sport, reverting to the “mother plant” with a full-petaled flower here and there, which will […]

Our annual club show was last weekend. I’ll be sharing photos over the next couple posts. Enjoy! Flowering azaleas were just past their peak, but still looked pretty good. Few pines, but it’s tough to show pines in the middle of their growing season. One full-Shohin display: A few Shimpakus, including a recent acquisition from […]

Here is a recent pickup. A small, baby-blue glazed formal rectangle pot. It’s just about 4.5″ wide and just over 1″ high. It will be difficult to use; very small for a Shohin, on the formal side for an accent plant. But, fits easily on the shelf. A chojubai quince, with its tiny leaves and […]
