Summer Cleaning a western juniper

bonsai general - 22 views



Some of the less exciting bonsai work happens in summer. This is when a lot of watering and fertilization occurs, but it is also a good time for jobs that can get put out during the busiest seasons as fall or early spring. A few months ago, the Western juniper then was wired and cut again. After putting in a lot of spring growth, it is the hirsute appearance.

Looking more closely at the tree, I saw that the wound sealant applied after the enlargement of the dead wood along the trunk three years ago was due to come off (see “Equipping a western juniper”). Now is as good a place as any to get him now, so he scraped with spatula at the end of pliers bent tip.

Because a lot of new foliage had grown from the tree was connected, I checked to see if the cable was cut. When checking the top, everything seemed fine, despite a suspicious lump at the base of a branch.

The same branch from below, however, it revealed that some cable had begun in the court. I took the wire and several others were cutting in.

I noted a large outbreak in the top of the tree that will help you fill in the apex when it’s time to connect the tree again, but not wire it as i want to grow as much as possible for now.
