Dragon bonsai Pine workshop

Post  chris on Sun May 13, 2012 5:15 pm

Once a month for the next 3 months we are having one Sunday dedicated to named species, today we started with Pines. We asked for as many trees as possible in all stages of development to be brought along
This way there would be plenty of stuff to talk about and work on.

The idea was to talk about all the aspects of Pines, types and the differences in their habit, soil mix,watering and feeding, pests, and the all important how to address candle pruning!!!!!

Hi Chris and the Dragon boyz,
Looks like a great day of sharing knowledge and tips without ego's getting in the way.
Great idea a whole day just on pines. So much to share and discuss.
Wish I could have made it, Uni assessment prep getting in the way. pale

Hi Chris,
enjoyed the day, it was a good call to start these themed workshops.
Must thank the lads for pooling their individual knowledge regarding what works
for them. I was very interested in the diverse methods used, all very valid by
having the proof in front of us.
looking forward to the next one
regards
JR

Looks like a great way to spend a day! Some very nice trees. I really like that little mugo...I've been looking at nursery stock but haven't seen anything that looked interesting (yet). Gonna have to keep looking. Any chance you have a close up photo of that tree?
