Shohin Shimpaku
« on: July 18, 2011, 05:55 PM »
I traded a pine for this tree this last spring and Suthin styled it while he was here.  I was told it is a San Jose juniper with a shimpaku graft.  It was grafted by Mas Ishii.  It is 8" tall and in a Sara Rayner pot.  It is doing the best of all my shimps.

You can probably afford one like this since its probably only a 3"-4" pot.  And, yes, she does make great pots.

I definitely eventually at least one of her pots.  Just stunning work.  But I want a larger one LOL

Don, I thought I found a blog by you the other day, but can't find it now.  I must've forgotten to bookmark the site.  Was this you or perhaps another Don Blackman?  It was a very good blog.

Well, if it was good, it wasn't me.  Actually, I don't blog, at least not right now, and I am Don Blackmond.

Well you should Don! Your BC's alone are worth documenting as this tree is a bit different to style then most other trees.  (btw, I did pinch my long feathers/leaves back as you suggested.  But I lost one new growth as I pinched it so it only had one leaf and then stem.  So I learned you must leave at least 3-4 leaves when pinching to avoid death....live an learn...esp. true in this hobby ;)) )

And I also wanted to Thank You for styling instructions, and the inspiration I get looking at your BC's!
