How to make bonsai tree Fuji Cherry or Prunus incisa Kojo-no-mai Bonsai Trees From Nursery Stock

 Hello folks welcome to Ma-Ke Bonsai. This is Mark D’Cruz. Today, I have Adriana with me and we’re going to pot this Fuji Cherry which make beautiful bonsais. This particular picture is of a tree at Kew and you can see it has this beautiful weeping habit which we will try and replicate over the next few years of training. Adriana got this for 8 pounds from the garden centre. She’s going to take it out of the pot and work on the nebari.

You start working on the nebari from the top and move down. Move away soil with a chopstick and then gently cut away the roots that have been exposed. Brush the trunk and the nebari to remove any soil and moss that may have collected on the trunk. The trunk is the oldest part of the tree and by exposing it properly, you will show off the age of the bonsai as you are creating it. She’s working on removing some of the bigger roots at the moment. Tapering the root ball so that it has a slope to the centre of the tree. Adriana carefully measures the depth of the pot and the width of the pot to ensure that she has the root ball to the right size. She would mark out the areas that she needs to cut away although keeping in mind that there is one centimetre space between the root ball and the pot surface.

She uses little tags to mark where she’s going to cut to. Because this is a peat based potting mix from the garden centre, it’s actually quite easily done. But with normal bonsai soils, it’s a little bit more tedious but nevertheless, the same instructions have to be followed. What about that Mark? Is that too high? I would go down one centimetre, one and a half centimetre because you’ve got to put soil in it. And then that height is more or less what you want it to be. I’m going to open it a bit more here, as it grows.

That pot is absolutely perfect for it. Adriana adds a thin layer of soil at the base of the pot and then makes a little mound in the centre. She places the root ball in it, jiggles it and fills it up with soil. And then ties the tie wires that we’ve had in the pot. She first hand ties it and cuts away the excess and then ties it with the jin plier to make sure that there is no slack in the tree. However, this is a relatively tall tree in the pot and it will need additional support while the roots extend into the new soil after which it will be fine. Towards the end of the video, you will see how we provide the additional support. Adriana is using the jin pliers now to tighten the wire and remove any slack between the soil and the wire.

Adriana is topping up the surface with some fresh soil. The soil will provide a new area for fresh roots at the top to grow. After a quick dunking, she is adding a thin layer of sphagnum moss onto the soil. The sphagnum moss helps with retaining moisture in the pot and also ensures that the topsoil doesn’t run away when you water it. After the sphagnum moss has been done, she will add green moss onto it at a later stage. She now flattens it down with a spatula to have a nice even gradient from the top of the pot to the top of the nebari, the rim of the pot. And it takes a little bit of doing but the end result is And it takes a little bit of doing but the end result is a very clean, freshly, nicely done pot.

And that’s what we’re looking for. She’s now tying the additional guide wires to ensure that the bonsai is held firmly in the pot so that there is no chance of even the slightest bit of movement once it has settled into it. Adriana is using jute twine to provide the additional support for the tree and this stage is quite essential. Makes the tree much stronger. If you do not add these guide wires on a tall tree like this, the tree tends to move with the breeze and the watering and its recovery can take much longer. But there we are. Here is the end result of the day’s work. It’s a nice-looking tree and it will develop into a weeping style as we go along. The top branches will be curved down and wired down or weighted down depending on which approach Adriana takes. Thank you for watching. We hope you liked the video. If you did, give us a thumbs up, otherwise there’s the other thumbs. But either way, do subscribe and we hope to see you again soon. Thank you for watching.

Nursery plant to Fuji Cherry Bonsai Tree; KOJO-NO-MAI make instant bonsai tree -Part 1 by mikbonsai

Hello everyone the second corn for neck bonsai I recently went to the local garden center and came across two Fuji cherries which are also known as cordial away and I’m going to make these into bonsai you I already have a few of these as bonsais and I like them as the flower and around April May and are beautiful there’s no foliage just flowers so I’m going to take it out of the pot and get started be interesting to see what’s down here start working on the ribs this is just garden centre compost I can see plenty of roots but need to have a closer look I also like to pull the tree out of fuse in at least one to two centimeters sometimes more if the there are decent surface roots which can be pulled up and exposed so this we don’t know yet but we’ll soon find out if it’s worthy of being pulled out if not believe it we just pull a little bit out but leave it as as it is I think we can pull a little bit out I can see there’s a bit more of the trunk below the soil level before the roots start all tidy up and we’ll catch up shortly I have managed to tidy up the roots and the top root is bending at an angle and that’s just that it must have been in a much shallower port than the part that it came out off and we’re trying to remove some of these really thick roots basically tangled up so I see what we can do and really are tailored up I think not one but divided into a number of taproots so trying to take them out let’s go inside now this is what color as you can see the roots are fused as somehow they’re not soft so much fuses they’ve just got so tangled up Dan supper yeah I’ve managed to separate them but they were really so it was like as if they were knit together very very tightly yeah baby yeah that’s basically what I’ve did right that was the main cap Rudin these other were the other the others were also coming out very very close together I just clean it up a little bit more to try and stand them stand the tree straight well it won’t stand off by itself it’s the root system isn’t wide enough to hold it up but at least of straighten the roots out and hopefully they’ll now grow radiant remove that pointing upwards and it’s ready to go into its new home bring the pot over of choosing this round blue apart and I’ve prepared it that much by removes the anchor wires and now have to get the soil in the pot and create a little mound on which to rest the tree and then ease it into into the pot and that’s as far as it’ll go and I’m going to use the wire to secure it Desktop do it gently firstly will really tighten it up afterwards well do the final of finishing of the title tightening the clay Chavez just to make sure the tree stands is able to stand in the pot can we continue putting more soil into the pot and cover up the roots and let’s get them into thee I haven’t cleaned the edges because I’ve taken off quite a lot at the bottom so it would take too much for two it dunst becomes a risk st if too much is taken off will the tree survive so has his first report we’ve taken off the worst of the roots and it now remains for the tree to get established in the pot and and the next report level points of sort things out as looking at the tree it’s not too bad there’s not branches which needs sorting there’s a bit of crisscross and I think I’ll probably wire it up as well as forcing the soil underneath using my finger for that purpose custard also straightens a tree up it is leaning too much in one direction before we tighten these wires right well now tighten these the wires naturally I cut off the excess wire and bury it same thing on this side drop down firstly I want to say a big thank you as we have hit the milestone in thousand subscribers and I want to say a big thank you to all of you out there who have subscribed and made this milestone possible and look forward to your continued support thank you very much from the bottom of my heart now the afterthought what do you call a judge with no thumbs justice fingers oh well there we go
