Good luck hooking up with locals.  This board has a few Canadians, but I don't recall many that were from Calgary specifically.

Bozen Bonsai, How are the trees doing?  I have found they don't like a lot of root disturbance or root pruning.  Work them down to the proper bonsai pot size slowly.  Susumu Nakamura once said, "Its better to have live bonsai in wrong size pot than dead bonsai in right size pot."  Also podocarpus do not take drying out so you have to watch that they never get too dry.  I lost a couple that way.

Sorry to report the Englemann spruce has died.  It slowly declined from mid-summer onwards.  The lowest branch lost all its needles and then this continued up the tree.  By fall there were no needles left on any part so the tree was discarded.  Don't think I'll try another.  Black Hills spruce does fine for me despite being slow growers so I will do those and other spruces that I have been successful with.

Getting a real beauty from Alvaro! Potential for this tree is amazing. He says it's about 300 years old. Collected March 2016. When it arrives, it'll go straight to the greenhouse...

Just to be technically correct its a katydid which is a relative of the true crickets.
