Bonsai Japanese Quince Trees (Chaenomeles japonica)
The tradition of growing miniature trees in shallow containers started in China, where is is called penjing (盆景), which means “tray scenery.” These tray displays have a number of variations, including “Tree Penjing” (shumu penjing), “Landscape Penjing” (shanshui penjing), and “Water and Land Penjing” (shuihan penjing).
The Japanese word, bonsai, is derived from the earlier Chinese word for the above practice: penzai (盆 栽). Bonsai is a much more specific artform, involving the restriction of the growth of a tree in a shallow container. This is achieved through root pruning, and foliage pruning, as well as the use of wire to guide the growth of the tree.
I have 50+ year-old quince trees I’d like to get off my hands before winter, for sale or swap. They make excellent bonsai specimens, and I ship them bare-root, so they are easily adapted to transplant into a bonsai soil.Photos: BonsaiTonight, The BonsaiCast, mainguyen2010, Seeds for Africa
@misguidedinsect I’m still trying to figure out exactly where to buy the last two. But I really dig where I displayed these.
I learned nothing in class today.
date yourself a man who knows what he wants and goes after what he wants
that knows he wants you and demonstrates that you’re exactly what he wants
stop dealing with wishy washy, indecisive, maybe/perhaps/kinda/sorta men
NOTE TO SELF
Goes for ladies out there too
