Chinese White pine

Post  AlanS on Mon Aug 08, 2011 2:32 pm

Hi

Has anyone ever tried a Chinese White pine pinus armandii as a Bonsai?
I picked it up for virtually nothing so thought if nothing else it will look nice in the garden
Any sensible advice is appreciated

Hi, and welcome to the forum.
Im still a beginner in bonsai, but all I would say is you should plant it out in the garden, since its so young. Let it fatten up for some years so it can get some more age. Wink

I know nothing about this species, and very little about pines in general, but it appears that this one doesn't want to backbud. try pruning selected branches down to just a couple of needles and see if it promotes any budding farther down the branch. You probably shouldn't do this now, though.

Thanks for the advice
I am going to put it in the ground for a couple of years and treat it the same as a Japanese White pine the needles might be a bit longer but it might look ok
