Getting ready for the Swapmeet   5 comments

Preparing plants I will bring for the swapmeet this year. Kind a mixed bag of stuff with plenty of tridents in all stages. A shimpaku and a San Josa that will make a killer shohin with the right practise. The luma, which is looking pretty good for another shohin.

I may have some pots also, need to look under every rock to see what I have.

Looks like rain is holding off till later Saturday night so the meet should be a go, unless the weather men are all wet!

Nice double trunk trident, and the luma off to the right.

A fat trident about 1 1/2 across

A larger trident in a 5 gallon can. Good movement on this one. just needs the right touch and practise to get it going.

This is a pretty nice juniper. The form is nice just needs someone to cut it out and define the foliage.
