Another Yamadori Rocky Mount. Juniper –

bonsai general - 52 views



This juniper has been growing in my backyard for a year. It is a client tree, another large Yamadori native who was picked up by Randy Knight Bonsai Oregon.

junipers do not like to be repotted very early, they do better when replanted in late spring, when it’s warmer. So this tree, which is in a box, you need a support of a wooden block that could stand for a few months, at which point it would be potted in a bonsai container. I also cut the box with a circular saw and the soil surface is leveled at the new slant so it would be easier to water.

is a fun, dynamic tree, and I liked jin tensions between the left and right foliage. To enter into discussions with people about how the foliage should go when there jin or shari present in a forceful manner. The jin or shari, assuming tree environment are a big clue: When storms come, prevailing winds, etc. If a jin is pointing in one direction, the living part of the tree must be styled in the other direction. I see even professionals do weird things with jin, as an indicator of wind direction. Only several trees ‘flag’ in the wind, one of them fir. Juniper is not one of them. Go to the mountains and dead branches are facing the environment. Check out the Monterey cypresses; same story.

to critique my own work, I think the apex should be approximately three inches to the left. That would be closer to the base and more stable. Something for the next redrafting …

(I’ve noticed an acute lack of dissent in this blog … people are thinking, ‘You’re a flake, Hagedorn, and does not know what is doing, ‘is not writing. Please write your real thoughts!)
