JBP Question ??

Post  Tom McCue on Fri Apr 09, 2010 2:28 pm

How long do you let the new strong candles on Japanese Pine get before cutting back? Are other pines treated the same way?
Everything I have read tells how and where and when (Strong, Medium Weak etc.) but does not tell how long to let them grow before decandling.

Hi Tom, This may be the most often asked question concerning pines and difficult to answer because it depends on your objective. I was really in the dark on this until I got my hands on The Bonsai Book, by Dan Barton. On pages 72-74 he gives a very concise description of objectives and techniques to achieve the desired result.

Boon has a good video on the subject. It is a different approach than the traditional timing strong medium weak de-candelling. He makes it pretty simple and very straight forward. I have a friend who has been using this method for years with exceptional results.

Neil! Thanks, Dah, I have both Boons Video's and just replayed the one on de-candling. My question is answered. Boons 2 video are sensational. I have started to repot by his instruction. I will also follow his decandling instructions. Oh if he lived in Michigan and I could be taught by him. I wish he would come out with more instructional DVD's. (U out there Boon Hint Hint)

I cannot wait for more DVD's.

Do you pinch any candles in late spring before you cut them in July? I am specifically asking about young trees that still need trunk fattening. thanks

no, i do not pinch any candle when i grow for the trunk size. i do cut it and find new apex when it reach the size that i want.
basicly, i follow the technique in bonsai today # 20. i think it is re-published in the pine book.
