Creating new buds on Scots Pine old wood

Bonsai & Yamadori from Tony Tickle

I am very pleased to see these new buds appearing on some of the Yamadori Scots Pines, I removed the end buds in November last year and this forces the energy in the tree to push out onto old wood. I left one branch with the end buds on to see the reaction: New buds have appeared but they are weaker and less frequent along the branch. Last year I fed the tree with Tibolar and the tree was very strong enabling me to do this work. NO needles were removed prior to this technique.
