Some nebari to noodle

A different view from Bill Valavanis‘ garden. The well-developed nebari on these trees is a result of doing the right work, right from the beginning…spread the roots radially, let them develop just under the soil surface, exposing them gradually after they’ve thickened sufficiently underground, then repotting on a sparing timeline. Enjoy!

Next week we’ll take a look at a white pine’s journey back to health over the last year.

  1. Yep, 20-50 years of proper root work on some of those. Bill’s Arakawa Mayumi(Rough Bark Euyonomous Seiboldianus) is one of my favorite trees of all time, and the pot it was in this year is a tragically broken Ichiyo, another prize from Bills collection!
