Juniperus Shimpaku 2005

3 months 1 week ago #60638 by Anthony W
This Juni is one of a few that I started from cuttings in 2005 that I think from memory i bought the following year for about $4 to $5 in a 4inch container only a few inches tall, why did I did that I do not know LOL as they are notorious slow growing in pots, I would pot up many times as they grew but would neglect to feed most times, so water and fresh mix when potting up were there only mean diet...poor things, but we did put some wire on at different times so not all wasted I don t think.....

It has been long wait...so 14 years later, today was the day..hope you like, first wiring

Wired this one up today from the wild stock

Gotta be 6mm JC and did you notice Anthony took a cutting the year before he purchased it
Nice work!!
Sorry Anthony -good result,gotta love the first wiring when your cutting/stock in the pot you’ve been growing (neglecting) for years finally looks like something !
I do the same

4.5mm JC, I already had the movement, just needed to lift the bottom branch out of the dirt and bring the main head back towards the centre/other main branch a little.

this one was pretty coiled up so just stretched it out a little bit causing my new wire to lift a bit in couple of spots, but some good movement here, raw at the moment

Ok, the tree is small?

It just that the wire looked about 8mm in the photo.

Hi Guys another one from the same vintage with the tail that has been approached grafted, hasn t been severed yet.
The head was compressed quite a bit and now coming forward and the tail lifted some and then every thing chocked in then refined, pretty happy with it.
cheers





chocked and compressed


refined with a couple of angles

Beautiful six sided pot from Leong and with great help finding the right one and angles with Brenda decided this way to display, front flat panel facing and with the tail cutting the adjacent panel in half, love it in the flesh with its depth and contours, flat photos only give a taste( or my dodgy images anyway lol )

cheers Anthony
