Some other projects

Post  John Buttino on Wed Jul 06, 2011 4:22 am

This weekend I was also training some other trees. All of these I grew from cuttings over the last 10 years of so.
I'm sure you all can call out what techniques I'm using!
They're all works in progress... I'm pretty much wiring/raffia-ing, trimming, scarring, and then forgetting about them for a few years, with the occasional haircut to see what they're up to.
I grow literally hundreds of trees, mostly Maples, Junipers, a ton of Kingsville Boxwood and some Pines.
I look forward to your feedback!

You definitely have the bonsai bug. Like I say, "Bonsai are like potato chips, no one can have just one." Where do yo keep all these trees in NYC?

Thanks...
The bug bit me in my teens! I just haven't had a place to play so much until about 10 years ago.
I have a section of my backyard and a 'lil greenhouse to make cuttings and seedlings comfy.
