Zombi Mugo video

Post  Vance Wood on Sun Nov 01, 2015 1:40 pm

Here is the beginnings of the redesign process on what I call my Zombi Mugo.  It is the result of a tree that I thought was dead for at least two growing seasons.

OK, here is kind of a telling of the cycle of obtaning a Mugo from a nursery that has them and what it takes to make the initial cuts and styling with aggressive efforts for next year in mind.

yeah vance... what alexandra said !

my favorite quote:
"... what do we eliminate...?
maybe the flawed human being playing around in it... that might help..."

thanks again and follow-up questions to follow, but right now i gotta scoot...

the sun is shining sunny

More than you can stomach probably.

If you want them I'll post them.

well if you have any follow up films of the ones you have already posted, that would be super...
otherwise, perhaps any other ones you think would be helpful for some of us looking into mugos

couple of quick questions though

what time of year was the initial elimination work done ? (doesnt look like early spring or late fall)
and what do you think of that type of initial work at this time of year ? (we are in similar zones i believe)
i am guessing that you did not repot the posted trees until the following season, correct ?

and lastly (for now) in one film you mentioned having repotted zombi at the wrong time of year, but didnt mention what you believe to be the optimum time for repotting mugos...

sorry for all the questions, but a couple years ago i lost the one and only mugo i had, perhaps for the same reason you had thought you lost zombi... in other words, i could google my questions, but when it comes to mugos, why not ask "the man" ? Cool

thanks again !
kevin

Kevin, I cannot believe you haven't known by now all about Vance Wood's mugos  Shocked
Father's day
doesn't this tell anything to you? Very Happy
I have had a long "discussion" some time ago with Mr. Wood at B-nut regarding my mugo.
Rest assured you will take all your answers in details Very Happy

In a nut shell:  with the exception of wiring and light pruning I don't really touch the roots on a Mugo much before the summer solstice.   I do all manner of things and get away with it after this time including major pruning, wiring and repotting---sometimes all at the same time.  

As to new videos I can do that if you really want to see more of them.



I started restyling this tree two years ago. I dug up the video documenting that process.

thanks vance - good to know that this is a good time of year for work.

videos are blocked here at work, so forgive me if this is mentioned in the last one you posted, but:
in your zone (maybe 4/5 i believe ?), do you winter yours outside or fully protected (garage, shed, etc) ?
i am guessing that due to their natural habitat, that they might do OK outside... ?

Hi Vance,

We've had our differences on these forums before, but that aside I just wanted to compliment you on that last tree you posted the video of. I think it is absolutely lovely! A bit quirky and different, but a fine example of how these types of trees can be thoroughly refreshing. Cookie cutter bonsai be damned! Good job.

Cheers,

Andrew

If you have access to a pond basket or colander I would suggest putting the tree in one of those. It will help develop new roots all over the tree as opposed to in just a couple of places where the tree has taken off while leaving the rest languishing in the dirt. As to when to Pot. I don't start the potting process until after the summer Solstice and then I can and do, do it up until the beginning of November. If you had to do it at the wrong time you should be alright just keep the tree sheltered and don't let it get too wet. Even in a colander it is possible to over water. I live in zone 5-6 though we do get temperatures down into the sub zeros. Mugo is considered hardy to zone 4. I keep all of my Mugos and Scots on the ground grouped together and sheltered by mulch and sometimes shade cloth.

thanks vance... i ended up just cleaning out the duff, weeds, etc... along with the removal (leaving stubs) of a few branches that were obviously weak, dead or unnecessary... i then planted it in garden until next season. (i do not have a colander or pond basket big enough to accommodate it)
