merry christmas to all

Post  kauaibonsai on Sat Dec 25, 2010 6:20 am

the last half of my christmas present arrived today, with no time to spare. the second part of a 5 tree order. first out of the box and into a soak was a jumbo green mound juniper. wonder what's hiding under that thick canopy ? Tree #2 is a short and mighty parsonii. great trunk, many, many good branches, two fronts, and at least three possible ways to go with styling.

progress - green mound #2

Post  kauaibonsai on Wed Dec 29, 2010 7:26 am

the foliage measures 4 feet across. a dense web of tangled branches and twigs


serious thinning and potting are must do's


the root ball is thick and healthy - a mass of feeder roots. very few roots are pruned


potted in oversized pot with fresh, fast draining soil


unnecessary branches are cut, some stubs retained, raffia, tape and wire applied


apex created, branches placed in position, done for now.
