Recently I participated in a show that displayed some of my trees! The show was put on by Kawa Bonsai Society (WEBSITE) called Joy of Bonsai. They had the following guest artists: Sean Smith, Mike Rogers, Randy Clark (2), Mike Cartrett (2), and Mike Sullivan. I wanted to share a video, pictures, and a newspaper article I'm in with my lovely followers!!!
Here is the Video I Made:
I put the pictures on my Flickr page, if you click here --> http://flic.kr/s/aHsjQYvNyX It will bring you to the pictures I took at Joy of Bonsai. The Friday night of Joy of Bonsai 2014, I had a guy take a picture of me helping Sean Smith on a Demo. I was helping put a guide wire on a juniper during Sean’s 3 ring demo… It turned out that the guy was from the newspaper and he asked for my name, then I told him that I had a display of trees here. Right before he had to leave, we went over to my display, and he interviewed me! He said it would be in the paper this Saturday (1/25/14), Click HERE to read the article.

It's 2014!! (Have a happy and healthy one!) Plus it's Winter!!! The weather here is still HOT and the leaves are still on the deciduous trees. (IE: Maple, Elm) If you want to repot a deciduous tree, you are probably wondering if it has gone dormant! I got help with this same problem from Mike Rogers. He told me to take off all the leaves. Then you are fine to repot like any other tree. When you take off the leaves, leave the little stem or bottom of the leave. An Example of a Maple is Below:
See how the right half still has the little stems from the leaves and the other half of course hasn't been defoliated yet. That is what you want to be left with. But of course the whole tree should be defoliated! Below is a Couple of Diagrams About Defoliating.
