Hello Mirai community,
Looking for suggestions about some boxwood collecting. I have access to some old boxwoods. They grew under unfavorable conditions so have quite nice movement in the trunk. For using them as bonsai the whole canopy would have to be developed new from chopped trunks.
How do you suggest going about the collecting.
- chop down during collection or leave at least some foliage to aid recovery and chop the trunks later
- recover as many roots as possible and transfer to pumice/bark mix or potentially heal in saw dust bed.
- Reduce roots and put into growing bags in the ground
- reduce roots and put into pummice/bark mix in colanders
Other approaches you would suggest?
Thank you for the input and support.
