What to buy?????

Post  Bonsai4life on Sun Feb 27, 2011 2:00 am

Hi everybody, right now i'm trying to expand my bonsai collection, im thinking of buying another tree. I went to my local bonsai nursery and saw 2 trees that really caught my eyes. One is a Dwarf Holly: 19 in. tall w/ 7 in. trunk, fully established. One is a Japanese White Pine: 15 in. tall w/ 3 in. trunk. I would like to ask which one is better to buy??? (I'm a beginner) n (the owner wont let me take pics of the trees)

But I've found some image on google that look somewhat like the trees that i mentioned.

Images removed as they are copyright of the Magazine.

Please give me some advices, thank you!!!! Very Happy

Hmmm if they really are the same price, the first one is way more worth the money. But I can't see a tree like that being the same price as that pine.....

The pine is actually better than in the pic, w/ really nice old flaky bark. just can find the pic to describe the tree. Smile

I also think the same thing, an established bonsai vs. a pre bonsai.

Why won,t the nursery let you take pics?

If the Ilex is anything like the image you have posted then buy it, its the better tree both in its horticulture and its development.
