Kurume Azalea bud removing part 2

Nebari Bonsai

Following the bud removal demonstrated in last week’s post, this is the tree in full bloom. Notice how the flowers have space to open and aren’t crowded into clusters of 3?

Blooming season was extended another full week, which is a treat for such a fleeting thing.

However, all good things end, and I’ve learned the hard way that it’s easier to remove the blooms while they’re still fresh, than to wait until they get slimy, or worse, wait until they get crispy. So, here we go…

The next step is to scrape off the top 1/2″ or so of the old soil, and add some fertilizer, and top it off with fresh soil. This pot is full of oxalis weed, and it’s a constant battle to stay in top of it.
