Collected Pyracantha 1

Post  Poink88 on Wed Sep 10, 2014 9:19 pm

On 03/16/2014, several local bonsai club members and I went on a dig. We finished at noon and had a great time. There were 6 of us but one is a boy helping his mom (so technically just 5). We only took 2-4 trees each and hardly made a dent on what will be removed.

There were 4 pyracantha and I took 2. Another friend took one but it was so difficult all 6 of us teamed up on it. All are in the property line and portion of each tree are on the other side of the fence...I had to dig under the tree and fence to cut roots going the other way. It was hard!!!

Here are some pics...

As collected...


After repotting..


On 04/12/2014, it got trimmed back a lot and sporting new growth already. Lots of carving coming next year.


Today, it is a ball of green leaves (due to regular pinching)...almost like a topiary but will be "reviewed" come spring next year.

Update photos to follow as they become available. Smile
