Some root work on tridents growing in the ground

More pix, fewer words. Here is the message: it’s important to work the roots on trees as they’re being developed in the ground. They’re going to grow, so it’s important to have them arranged properly first, so when they do grow, they grow in a way that we appreciate for bonsai.

Back in the ground, cd and all. If it doesn’t grow, blame it on the rain.
Thanks for reading. Next week we’ll talk azalea flowers!

  1. Let me get this straight, you are digging them up in April pruning the roots and replanting them.
    I just wanted to make sure, that is what I should be doing in California? I learn from good people like you that are willing to share. It helps all of us grow a Bonsai artist. Thanks

    • Hey Brian, for developing trunks do you do this every year? seems like I would be sacrificing growth (girth) to do it that often…
