First time collecting

Post  Dwight on Thu Apr 28, 2011 10:22 pm

In March I was fortunate enough to be allowed to attend a dig with the Albuquerque , New Mexico bonsai club. I collected three one-seed junipers. They are still alive and budding like crazy so there is some hope. What do you think ?

I have read a few times (once on Harry Harringtons web site) that wild collected Junipers are notoriously difficult to get to survive for more than a few years, due to this fact I have never tried to lift one. I dont want to rain on the parade here and I really hope they ALL survive, they are excellent material, is it only one species of Juniper that resists the wild collection process and are some better able to cope with transplant? Id love to know!

Looks like you've come a long way from the days of having to purchase them from unscrupulous collectors ThumbsUp

You actually remember that ? Wow. Yes if I ever purchase another yamadori it will be from Andy Smith. Wait , I just sent him an email purchasing a RMJ I like. Funny how things work.

John ,

Thats my favorite as well. It's not visable in the photo but theres a bunch of dead wood on that guy/girl. No berries yet so I don't know if its male or female. The second one is a lot nicer than the photo and it's small , about 20" so it will be fun.
