My first jbp
« on: July 01, 2010, 12:57 PM »
I'll have to search for old pictures, but I've never shown this one.  It was a $15 home depot 3 gal JBP in '05 (i believe).  I bought it to experiment w/ pine techniques.  

Anyway, you'll see this year's decandling photos attached.

I noticed buds all around the candle cut sites yesterday.  I always find this an exciting time of year.  Hopefully I'll start to see buds popping along the branches soon.

Fall work completed for the year.  I really need to use Cu wire.

I know at one time you had thought about making a shohin out of this one.  Is that still a possibility?  If so, the bottom 2 branches will need to be brought down more and shortened in the future.  If not, they will likely need to be removed for a larger/taller tree, as they'll likely be too low to be incorporated in the design, I would think.

Cu:

Here's the spring update.  The 2nd picture indicates my new front, and the red arrow points to where I could use a graft.

Shim:
Currently I'm trying to decide whether to graft or repot this season as I've been told not to do both the same year.

My plans include a new branch indicated somewhere near where indicated, and eventual removal of one (and more eventually both) low branch(es).

Anyone:
What should I look for in scion selection?  What should I do this year to get proper growth for scions next spring?

If I were you, with this tree, I would likely repot this year, then either don't decandle, or don't decandle a select few branches, to leave yourself some big/healthy scions for either bud or approach graft (though it might take more than 1 year for suitable branch/scion for approach graft).

What about the sacrifice branch I've allowed to grow?  (Ignore the cut needles.)

If the needles weren't cut...  ;)

The bud is definitely strong.  I would like to see more needles on the scion for a bud graft.  For approach graft this would be fine.

That was just the first picture I could edit.  How about some of these?

I repotted it this year, so I'll graft next spring.  I'll try to get pictures of the process.
