Birch from seed

Post  Vitusus on Fri Jun 03, 2016 8:06 pm

Hi all, this is my birch grown from seed, I think it's some three years old now, maybe four, not sure exactly. I repotted it this year and it is growing quite well so far. I'm thinking about shortening the apex though later during the season as it seems to grow like crazy.





Any tips and tricks for the birches? Except for that it is not suitable for bonsai Laughing (I seem to hear this about way too many tree species)

Birch make for fine bonsai. I used to grow several of them when I lived in Alaska. It looks like you live in apartment, I would plant that guy in the biggest pot you can find and let it go crazy for two years and see what you get for trunk growth.
