Cotoneaster Questions..

Post  sunip on Wed Feb 16, 2011 8:36 am

[quote="William N. Valavanis"]Chris,
You did not misunderstand my instructions. I suggested you keep the plant in the house for the first winter. I can show you superb cotoneaster, and also juniper bonsai grown indoors under lights for 40 years, NEVER been outdoors. Jack Wikle has been growing some of his smaller bonsai like this for decades.
When the weather gets better, May in Rochester, put the plant outdoors in the shade, then slowly into the sun.

Hello William N Valavanis.
This is nuancing the matter a bit.
The dogma is, the outdoors NEED a longer period (about at least 6 weeks) of winter dormancy/frost,
other wise they weaken on the long term(over the years).
This gave me the feeling, everything is going fine but one day i will be presented with weakened trees.
I have most of my trees in a frost free green house over the winter and i give,
except of the mediterranean, the trees some frost so they go in dormancy.
I learned everybody does his own thing in this, but i wonder what is going on her
i mean horticultural/ biological speaking?
reards, Sunip;)

Todd - getting back to the original topic (and sorry for the detour, I considered starting a new thread but didn't), I hope you keep us posted about the progress of the cotoneaster ...especially the work you do this spring, and its response. Looks like it has great potential.

Chris,
No worries, I'm glad it has gotten a boost of response lately as I can surely use the information. I definitely will keep this one updated. As of right now I have not done any wiring on it, just an initial pruning. Come spring I will reduce the root mass and wire it up then decide what direction it will take. As soon as I start I will add more photos. Thanks

Todd

Sadly I lost this one a few seasons ago to a deer attack (Pulled from the bench, smashed pot, and root damage) followed by a severe winter. Another reason I think I need to buy a bow.
