A walk through the nursery

Today I thought I'd post a few pictures of some of the trees I've been working on and  of some  the nursery. Our nursery hase about 3/4's of an acre devoted to bonsai and material for bonsai. We have material from 1 gallon size trees started from cuttings to 15 gallon and larger sized trees . We  also have hundreds of partially trained olives, elms, junipers, hackberry and more  that are ready to go into a bonsai pot, needing only some refinement to be a fine tree. There is  an amazing selection of world class California Juniper and many other specimen bonsai that really need to be seen in person to be truly appreciated. We grow Japanese Black Pines for landscape use as well.
Here are some recent bonsai's that I've worked on, the small juniper was not so recent I think that was in February.

I hope you enjoyed todays photo's and that they make you want to come visit and see more.  We are always happy to have visitors so if you are ever in the area stop by. In the coming weeks, after the weather starts to cool I plan on a few how-to photo essays for beginners.
