Pretty impressive for being in an almost pure pine bark (coarse)nursery mix (it was in a training container, not a bonsai pot) I picked it up from Dragon Tree Nursery, Robert sure knows how to grow roots. #mybonsaiworld #bonsai #roots #horticulture

Going CRAZY today at the Clearwater advanced study group, thread-grafting roots onto this unfortunately root bare trident maple. #buildingatree #mybonsaiworld #bonsai #grafting #horticulture (at Clearwater, Florida)

biodiverseed:

Pocket Plum Gall

Caused by the fungus Taphrina pruni, this disease infects plums, sloe, and damsons (as well as other closely-related Prunus), making some of the fruits grow in an oblong shape, and fail to develop a stone. Vascular tissues of the plant are also deformed by the fungal mycelium, forming witch’s brooms

The local Mirabelles seem to be infected, although as you can see by the photo above, they still produce healthy fruits alongside the deformed ones. The fungus won’t kill the tree, but will certainly reduce the harvest.

The best solution is pruning out infected growth, and burning it to prevent the spread of more airborne spores.

Ok blog readers, I have three drafts in the queue, which one should I finish first? A juniper one, a soil one or a Brazilian raintree one? #mybonsaiworld #bonsai #blog #trees #horticulture (at Adam’s Art and Bonsai Studio and Nursery)

Help in the nursery today! I was asked by Paislyn (on the left) to be a mentor in her PLTW BioInformatics program for school. She is pursuing the subject of using plants in mental health therapies. My daughter is in the middle and Riley is on the right. They’re just labor. #mybonsaiworld #bonsai #horticulture #pltw (at Adam’s Art and Bonsai Studio and Nursery)
