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.
Where do you keep your shohin trees, Walter?
Jerry,they are all in the greenhouse.
Any heating in the greenhouse?The greenhouse appears to be in the sun - are you ever worried about the temperature rising too high and waking the trees?
Jeremy, I do this since more tahn 20 years with the same greenhsoue. Yes it is in the sun. It is very well ventilated. The doors are open 90 % of all days in winter. The tempertures go down to abut minus 5 °C before I start to heat it with a very ordinary cheap heater. Yes, the trees wake up about three to four weeks earlier than outside. It is not really a problem. Many trees are babied too much in winter.
Hello, why do you put all them in the ground?Manos
Manos,to protect them from cold. If one does not know it is hard to believe that just this putting down to the ground makes ALL the difference in a cold winter. Believe me, it does. I know, I have lost a few hundred trees in winter during the past thirty years. Most were on posts.
