A Lot to Learn about Bonsai

I’m reblogging Michael Hagaedorn’s post on junipers as a reminder of juniper care for my own collection.  I had a personal experience of the pinching errors that Michael talks about.  I posted earlier of my shimpaku juniper I call “infity”.  I shaped this tree as if it was immortal and got a little carried away.   I did some  of the undesirable techniques of pinching.  I’m embarrassed to say, that I almost killed the tree.  Luckily the tree is still alive and is recovering but it maybe a while before I can post any decent photos of it.  Needless to say, I have a lot to learn about bonsai.

My little trees are my daily reminders of our grand connection to this beautiful and mysterious universe.
