Prunus #11

Wild cherry, Prunus mahaleb, collected in 2009. See what I did in February of this year. It looks like I have ruined it. And then see what the effect of my horticultural regime was. It will be very dense almost immediately.

here in portugal we have a kind of material we use in contrucion of houses called (LECA) or argila expandida ,what do you think of it for modern substrate?

Walter Pall said...

Leca is fine. Use sizes around 4 mm.

Hi Walter,

I was wondering if you use the same watering/feeding regime on a tree with no leaves like this one was after you cut it in Feb.

I read a lot that a tree with no leaves don't need water.

thanks

tanks for your adice, can you tel me if i can do an airlayer in a cedrus atlantica?and what is the best time for it?

Walter Pall said...

A tree without leaves does need water, only much less. I start feeding when the leaves come out. In my area this is around beginning of April.

Walter Pall said...

I don't think that it is a good idea to try to airlayer an Atlantic cedar.

This is not the place to discuss such things here. Go to a bonsai forum. I will not respond to such questions in the future.

Your blog was very informative. Thank you for posting the bonsai pictures too. They were so beautiful. Bonsai is indeed a living art!
