  1. Every time I read a post about your bonsai trees, I feel inspired to begin. I love my garden and the whole process of helping things grow feels sacred. Nurturing and “crafting” a tree does seem like it would be very relaxing.


  2. I actually have a native oak grown from an acorn that’s been in an ordinary plastic pot for about 10 years and is still less than a foot tall. But I’ve never pruned it or repotted it.
    I have seen these types of oaks growing in exposed rocky sites near the sea where they are dwarfed to 6 feet or less by the tough conditions including winter winds. On the other hand, in favourable inland sites with good soil and enough moisture they exceed 100 feet and live for hundreds of years.


we would love to hear from you!
