Nursery trash bonsai

Post  Vance Wood on Wed Jan 15, 2014 2:41 am



Nursery trash bonsai.  This Shimpaku started this  journey as a three gallon nursery tree about five years ago.  It still has a long way to go but it's a start.

To be honest with all of you this was actually another attempt to get posting photos right. Something I have not been able to do since changing over to an Apples System. It seems to have worked and I am happy.

Good to hear from you as well.  You don't post at Bnut as often as you used to.  How's the little Pine doing? You still have just about the only example of Pinus Virginiana that I know of and a nice one as well. Thanks for the kind words about my Shimp but compared to some of the trees I see on this site my tree is not much better than trash.

You are most welcome, Vance....and no, I have not harvested any more virginia pines....my health is o.k. but not great so I don't get out in the field much anymore....here is a picture of the pine you referred to...I so much enjoy taking care of it.  This photo. was taken in September of 2013........hard to believe for me that it was collected back in the spring of 1992.

Best regards,
Tom

Vance, your Shimpaku is very nice! And Tom, your pine is nice too. I have many seedling pines in my yard and have been pruning on them for a few years with hopes that they might turn into something. Some of my favorite trees were found in the trash areas of nurseries, TLC sections  Very Happy

Wow!  You have done wonderful things with this tree.  It is a fine a piece of work as I had seen around here in some time.

Question for you Tom: What's the story with the container? I would love to get my hands on something like it.

Vance....your words truly humble me....I deeply appreciate them....I think you deserve a lot of the credit because over the years since you first commented on the tree, you recommended training the tree as you do your mugos (which are very beautifully done...especially the one in this post....is that the one you dubbed "Fat Little Pig" in the early days of the GardenWeb?

I have trained my virginia pine for many years as per your recommendations, and for that I am truly thankful.

Regarding the pot, I obtained it from Dave Lowman of DaSu Bonsai (he has a website)....in Iowa.

Nice to reconnect with you, my friend....

Best always,
Tom

Thanks a bunch you are too kind. You are also correct this is the one time pig. As much as it has been reduced I am contemplating renaming it bringing home bacon.
