Title: Some advice
Post by: Steven on August 11, 2012, 10:54 AM
I have a JWP 'Arakawa' and a Ginkgo 'Chi Chi' that are in 4 inch square by 6 inch tall nursery cans. Was wanting to know if I can up pot them. They keep getting knocked over by wind. Since I've been in hiatus with everything else going wrong in my life just need a little help. Thanks.

Yes, just slip pot them. You can use string or wire to tie down in the new bigger pot. Hope things get better, John

Thank you John. I just feel so displaced. Out of touch with bonsai. Alone.

Take heart, nothing lasts forever, even bad times.  Post your favorite tree, and re-connect. :)

Many garden centers have old trays lying around that hold that size pot.  Then you can fill the rest of the tray with more new trees  ;D.

Many of my favorite trees died. I lost a lot over the past two seasons. I kept a few(not many good ones) and the rest I sent back to South Carolina. I am jobless and homeless(as in having my own place to live). Getting new trees is not an option as I am only getting unemployment. I can't even afford to pay dues and attend the bonsai study group by Bogans Bonsai. I miss the companionship of fellow bonsai enthusiasts
