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.
Pity about the "nebari".
Why, cant you see the invisible partly mosscovered rock under it?
Why, can you not see the invisible, pratly mosscovered rock its resting on?
Who is the half globe post by?
William Vlaanderen from the Netherlands.
No, strikewolf, I can't. And even if I could, I would still consider those aerial roots on the left rather unsightly (mildly put).No wonder the tree is for sale or trade.
Walter, please could you describe how you prune your spruces?
I cut them like a hedge with long sharp scissors.
Walter, they do not look like hedges! To be more specific: For safety and for rapid development - do you trim spruces only once a year in summer, and only new growth? or are they not too sensitive once established under your feeding regime?
The trick is to use a hedge shear and let the result look natural. I trim them mainly once a year. Now.But often not only new growth. I also edit old growth. I do this with all spruce - about 100 of them in my garden - the largest collection of spruce that I know of.
I'm not a huge fan of those roots either...but without them the rest of the tree would need some redesigning as it would look hugely out of balance.Just my 2 cents
