Spring Shelter-in-Place – Garden Tales, 3/21/2020


These are odd times we living now. In California we are all under a shelter-in-place order with the spread of COVID-19 spreading around. One bright side of this crisis for bonsai folks is the change to stay home and play with trees more than normal. We and they are a captive audience. The weather here has gone cool and misty again. Trees have been cranking out a lot of aggressive Springtime growth. Many trees have too much moss on them again and require cleanup. Dead material from the winter also needs cleaned up or removed. This is rotation time as well to get the best sun exposure for new growth.

Pictured here are some cleaned up beauties that just cried out for attention.
