Field grown Shimpaku Shohin

Postby pjames » August 7th, 2017, 11:58 am

This Shimpaku Juniper was dug in 2016. When I dug it, i didnt check the nebari, i just immediately potted it. It went well during springtime and I decided to do another repotting to a bonsai pot. i was surprised how good the base of the tree is. This year,it was styled and deadwood work was done.

Lots of promise :tu: :tu: and im guessing eventually you'll work the rootball down to a smaller pot? . I have 3 in the ground grown last 6 years . They have been cut back heavily this year to get some inner growth closer to the trunk to make future branches. one of mine has a base very simular . I also did about 15 procumbans that I bent as a whip 6 years ago . These were dug , root trimmed , pruned and replanted for another year some gems in that lot .

Can't wait to see your trees. I was planning soon but I can't, our first baby will be born anytime now.

I will definitely repot this one next year. I've got a suitable pot for it.

This just made it to 25cm. I will check again to confirm. Yeah, they are hard to get rid off. I was cleaning them in autumn and few weeks later they are back. :shock:

Hi Pjames
Nice tree mate, for those weeds, I use a gel type weedkiller that I get from the big green shed. I just paint it on the weeds with a paintbrush .
Cheers Peterb

Thanks Peter. Does it remove the weeds permanently? I tried different weedkiller, it is effective couple of months and they come back.
