Bougainvillea Urban Yamadori from between 1904 -1912

Post  Andre Beaurain on Sat Jun 30, 2012 11:05 am

We are currently renovating the Gardens of a Historical house, 7000m2 of GARDEN!! Most of the plants were planted between 1904 and 1912
Sadly a couple of the old plants needs to be removed, and gladly be transformed into glorius bonsai, with YOUR help ofcourse.
Here is the first a Bougainvillea, She's a monster, had to dig her out with a Diggy loader.

What to doooooo?

Leave it alone for now.
The uprooting and transfer must have stressed the tree.
Let it grow freely for some time.

I dont know where you are potting this monster, but the roots system dont seem that tough from the pictures.
Let the root ball toughen some more before doing more work on the tree.
Seems like you're in SA, sun must be hitting hard, so keep your soil medium moist too.
Try to avoid letting it go dry at all if you can. Dont overwater [ sluggish soil/substrate ], just keep it moist.

Good luck
Xavier

Jesse, I do feel very very blessed, and honored to look after these plants for a while and hopefully turn them into bonsai.

Not only did we resque the Bougainvillea, but what do you think about this, Pong...

But there is also a Wisteria form pre - 1912 and a incredible Dark Pink HT rose from the same period.
This is the Wisteria. Also a big Monster, dont know what the hell I'm gonna do with this??



The Rose, The centre Growth has now been removed, as I realized that it was the Wild Rootstock that grew. The stump is huge!!



Xavier,
Thanks you so much for you advice. The bougainvillea is planted and well watered in this rainy weather, I go to her every day to see if I can spot any swelling . I'm not worried about Her. She'll live. I will not touch her for the next year ..promise.

Thanks Brendan

Yes of course it is still alive, but loosing alot of the bulk of the tree. Its seems that deadwood is not the thing for Wisterias and the top bulk of the branches rotted, I cut it back hard and is now a very short stout tree, but rot....ooo dear lord.

Its like bougainvilleas, eventually the inside will rot out if you expose dead wood..... and then?

Will post pics soon..

Love and light
