Some of these have had their soil refreshed, some are in show pots for the first time, and some were up-potted to baskets for further growing out.
This small trident is seeing a show pot for the first time. It is an import Chinese pot I bought from Don Blackmond
This small trident also see a show pot for the first time. This pot by Dick Ryerson.
This small mountain maple has been refreshed in its Gary Wood pot.
This Shishigashira is also refreshed in an import pot from Japan.
This Trident has been refreshed in a pot from Yamafusa
I picked up these three new pines from Ed Clark. These pines were grown in four inch nursery pots. These have not been grown in the ground. The trunks currently are about 1 inch and have been grown with wire from whips and the wire allowed to embed and thicken. This is how they looked coming out of the 4 inch pots. plenty of white roots showing they are now pushing sap and growing.
Teasing out all the roots.
Cutting back for replant.
All of the pines were planted in coarse soil in 12 inch pond baskets. This is no.one.
This is no two. This has the potential to become a pretty good semi cascade.
This is no. three. This has some really good twists and turns. The trunk is fat, nearly 1.25 across at the bottom, five inches tall and really good taper. This will become a fine shohin bonsai pretty quickly.
