TOPIC: Sageretia Theezans (Bird Plum)

Re: Sageretia Theezans (Bird Plum) 6 years 11 months ago #2839

Thanks Angie. :)

I think you're right about letting the back two grow wild...however, I'm thinking the one needs more branches lower down on the trunk? I'm still quite inexperienced in all this and when it comes to trimming/pruning/styling my own little trees I am so unsure of what the next step is to take for fear of killing them. I've read the basics over and over again but I am really challenged at recalling information. It's so frustrating :unsure:

I must get reading up on creating shohin. I was reading a book this morning and it says that shohin must be kept in tiny pots. Now I'm not so sure my transplanting them into standard 4" pots was the right thing to do. :pinch: Uuugh!

Shohin -- from what I understand, that is a pretty good move to get the trunk to grow. Once the trunk reaches the desired width, slowly move it into a smaller pot -- inch by inch. :dry:

.. That's what I read anyway ... But I will experience that transition with you. :lol:

Hmmm...just found this webisite on shohin. Have not yet checked it out deeply, but this fellow's work with shohin comes highly recommended.
