My Rocky Mountain Juniper

MatsuBonsai:
First, I really like the tree.  I think in it's current orientation I may like to see it shortened some.  In the earlier pictures, before scrolling down, I was wondering what it would look like tilted more to the left.  It looks like you went the other direction, which seems to work, too.

Waiting to hear what others, and especially Walter, had/have to say.

Thanks for sharing.

John Kirby:
I remember this tree, you have done very well with it. I am impressed with the quality of foliage for a Georgia RMJ, they really tend to get leggy. Nice work. Still miss the cold?

MatsuBonsai:
That was the other question I had.... What's the secret with the foliage?  Soil?  Water?  Fertilizer?  Looks really good.

Thanks John.  I'm glad you remember this tree...that thread on Bonsaitalk really knocked the wind out of me and your advice both within that thread and via pm really helped me get through that initial rough patch. 

Walter also commented on the "healthiness" of the canopy.  In all honesty, I've been flying by the seat of my pants since moving to Georgia but have been pleasantly surprised that the tree's responce to it's change in locale.  In my estimation, the tree has continued to grow well here in GA, and without the leggy growth, which may be because it gets pinched back every 6 weeks starting in April.  It only gets between 4-5 hours of direct midday sun a day, filtered sun otherwise.  It gets full strength miracle grow and fish emulsion weekly during the growing season. 


Yes, I miss the cold and snow...no, I don't miss paying my heating oil bill or shovelling.

John Kirby:
Cool, you have done well. Will be fun to see it in 5 years........
