Walter Pall's main blog about bonsai and his work with trees from day to day. Lots of good pictures of good trees and lots of valuable information about bonsai.
Hello Walter,I know this is kind of off topic, but I have a hornbeam which just went nutts a couple of weeks ago. We had some terrible weather here in Transylvania this year with constant rain and low temperatures during the summer, and most of my trees (actually every tree in the city) started to have autumn leaves in the middle of august. Now we've had some nice, warm weather for a couple of weeks, and one of my hornbeams started to shed its old leaves and open its buds. Never seen anything like this before in this time of the year. Should I do something? Is it normal for this to happen?Thanks in advance,Bandi
Sure you shold do something. You will have to protect your tree from frost. Otherwise the young leaves will die and the tree has not built buds for next year yet. If the tree makes it into middle of November with green leaves it is OK.
I'll keep an extra eye on them then. Thanks for the quick response.Best regards,Bandi
