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.
Walter, Here in the UK unfortunately we do not have this wonderful bonsai species. My area does grow some Fagus Sylvetica raw material, including some specimens very similar to your collected Carpinus O. My question: Would your collected rootball size and development schedule for Fagus material be any different to that for Carpinus?
Collecting is pretty much the same for Carpinus or Fagus. Only Fagus has a much worse survival rate. You will have to expect that arond 50 % die within he first year. When they have survived that they are quite stable. A lager rootball is NOT the answer to that.WP
Thanks Walter, you save me getting back strain for no reason!
I have to say that tree does look marvelous with the snow on it.
