TOPIC: Yamadori season 2020

Yamadori season 2020 2 months 2 weeks ago #56978

Hey anyone getting busy collecting yamadori these days besides me?
I am wrecked after the first day!
Now I get it why the larger yamadori trees are so expensive - just to get them out is usually quite painful.
And then get them home on your back ... luckily I have been digging not far from my car :dry:

My first collected trees this year are these 2 Field maples - Acer campestre.
Planted in pure zeolite and hidden in black bags in my new polytunnel (which got nearly blown away by very strong wind yesterday :D )

Good bases, but also big cuts on these Mimo!

I am not collecting anymore. I have no place for trees. To the point that I now have some 15 trees marked for selliong this year. :|

I still have an azaleas at least 40 years old and at least one winged elm, and a lot of land to clear, so who knows? What I really need to do is expand the porch.

Well that´s how it is with larger deciduous yamadori material :)
You gotta live with it.
Doesn´t mean it cannot be a great bonsai in few years :)

This was a boxwood shrub about 50 years old. I took it to our workshop, carried in the pot, carried in the dirt, lugged in the tree, combined them all, and it took three of us to carry it out to the car. I got it to this location with just one other person.

I have been grinding a little bit off the exposed wood as the fit strikes me, as I figure out what to take off, and when the rain stops long enough for the wood to dry. In the last month that has been about four days.
