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.

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.

Has anyone tried this muck recipe which looks way easier than digging up clay ?

My maple bonsai is dying. Within a week it went from green leaves to crisp dark brown green wintered leaves. I watered it heaps everyday. But then some of the ends of the branches started to go brown and soft. I don’t know what’s wrong. It’s been in part shad and morning sun. The soil is very moist. Any ideas or help?

Hi, I’m new to this forum and so glad I found it as there is heaps of info on here. I have moved from Cairns to Canberra to be with grandchildren and we are moving into a very small area and I don’t have room for my collection so I am going to have to sell my trees which I am told by the previous owner, that they are nearly 50 years plus and grown from cuttings. Unfortunately they have been neglected and need pruning but I don’t have the time so I have to sell. I have Some Jade which are about a mtr high. If anyone is interested please call on 0419961796 and ask for Paul and I will send pictures .

There are many plants designed for other purposes that are turned into very good Bonsai. Even though this has been suggested as a hedge there is no reason it wont make a good Bonsai. As a for instance a Red Gum is a 45 m tree and can be turned into a very stunning Bonsai. To post on the forum for more assistance go to Board Index then Bonsai Cafe should get you started for some assistance. Cheers

From what I can gather on google this is a plant you grow into a hedge. Please tell me that I, and google, am wrong.

I'm new to this forum and can't find a way to post a question, but here goes anyway. Last Christmas my daughter gove me a bonsai (fig) which she had bought from bunnings. I figured that I needed to learn a bit about bonsai so enrolled in a course. Now I have the fig, which is doing well, and a Juniper. I've been happy with these two trees, they have certainlyu given me an interest that I never had before. Jump forward to today, all three daughters gave me a "Bonsai" and a card that brought tears to my eyes. How do I tell them that something that costs $20 from Bunnings is not a Bonsai? It is an "Euonymus Japonicus" "Tom Thumb"

I have a bonsai that was given to me by my dad and is approximately 15yrs old. I have not maintained it and it needs some desperate love and care. I wanted to join here for advise. I have photos if I can post them for suggestions??
