I have a couple maple projects in the work-I haven’t posted them yet and there’re local species, but I’ve snooping around(looking all shaddy like) local garden centers for a Japanese maple. I finally found a bloody good one, well, take a look. It’s a bloodgood Japanese maple. While these are not the best they can be with a little work and attention. Here’s the full tree
It’s a pretty big tree, on top of that it was only 50$. It was fun stuffing it in my little 2 door car-beep beep. Fall is a good time to hunt for store yamadori 🙂 The main reason why this guy caught my eye is this
It has good shape and nebari. This spring I will chop it to a basic shape and plant it in wide shallow grow out box, and leave it alone till next spring. It’ll be a large size bonsai due to the larger leaves on this variety. I got to say though it’ll look really cool once done due to the leave always being red. More, come spring.
Here’s another project that I’ve been working on for a few years. It’s finally ready for a nice pot and this spring it will be planted and then styled again in the summer. This guy was dug up in my yard due to a new deck being installed. It was kinda a rush as it was planted in a 5 gallon bucket I cut down and planted in 100% turface mvp.
