Juniperus horizontalis

Post  Andre Beaurain on Sun Jul 20, 2014 8:15 am

Hi all you lovelies

I planted this Juniperus in a hollow stump in a pathway in my garden. (1999)  Needless to say everyone walked right over it, like a welcome mat.   Bleddy stupid idea I had. hihihihi

Anyway then I had a struck of brilliance, which only lasted a few seconds.  But the tree was ripped out of the ground and slapped into a blue bonsai pot where it sat for the next couple of years, not doing much.  Poor thing.





Last week I tackled it and out of the ashes rose a Phoenix.  Im still cleaning the deadwood and will then Lime sulphur it.

What do you think , and what kind of pot  should I plant it in in September? Shall I take of more Foliage?





Love and light
Dre

Nice work there! (scratches his head and thinks.. I have one of those burried in the shrubs somewhere..)

I would probably go for a very simple unglazed roundish pot..?, along these lines?

Hi Andre

You could catch me in a trap baited with a blue pot.  Very Happy 

I have convinced myself conifers are a figment of the imagination and given up on keeping one alive, but nice transformation of a little tree that didn't have much going for it.

Lime sulphur, little bit more foliage and a.......smaller blue pot!  Laughing   Laughing 

Cheers

and a.......smaller blue pot!

Or, NOT.  Maybe a glazed brown or tan. Junipers don't belong in Chinese blue pots!

yeah...
because you certainly don't want to be ostracized at "the contest" because you put it in a pot that you like  Rolling Eyes

nonononono! Blue modifies Chinese. It's that gawdawful neon electric blue that doesn't go with a juniper and epitomizes cheapness.
