Hi mel hows your day?

Bonsai is growing strongly otherwise but showing signs of brown leaves. Could this be sunburn from heat few days ago or something else? Any suggestions?

Metasequoia/Dawn Redwood brown leaves

G'day. I have just inherited (he passed away last week) some 50 + Bonsais from my brother. To be realistic I had to give most away and now have what I considered, at the time, to be the 13 strongest, healthiest, managable trees to nuture. I have no idea as to what is required to keep them alive and several are showing strong signs of stress. eg the outer leaves are browning, moss has died, 1 looks/is dead. I need all the help I can get, live near Yeppoon Qld and don't want to loose what my brother has spent years growing with a passion that only he had. Please, some out there help me, I don't want to loose them as well.

Hello, have a couple of Pepper Trees, one in the ground about 1 mtr tall, other in pot about 60cm tall. Have been styling & trimming branches, but as it's VERY dry, wondering when is the best time to lift them & root prune? TIA.

I am looking for advice on when to style a Callistemon - probably C. viminalis. I live in the Snowy Mountains.

Just signed up here, would anyone happen to know if people organise trips to go out and collect yamadori on the forums? Or the relevant sub forum to findiscuss people who are interested? I was keen to go around late winter or early spring.

(appologies, spell check removed a word.) * i flipped the cut-off ROOTS, upside-down and put it in my bird aviary*

May 19th, 2018, 11:30 pm

Ok, the Juniper was so root bound, i had to cut it in half. On the positive, i flipped the cut-off, upside-down and put it in my bird aviary. Works well.
