Winter Bud Selection

Important Winter Bud Selection on Deciduous Bonsai

japanese maple australian bonsai galleryThe Japanese Maple in this clip was purchased from The Koreshoff Bonsai Nursery in 1977.  It was only a basic nursery stock plant back then but the Autumn colour was very good.  It has been re-worked to improve the basic branch structure and to facilitate future ramification.

The Liquid amber is from 1985 nursery stock and, like the maple, was field grown for many years.  I have been working on the ramification for a few years now.  The results have been good with the resultant leaf size being reduces significantly. 

Bud selection should be done well before the Spring so that growth can be directed only to important structural bud-points on the tree.  Selecting two buds from each terminal will help to accelerate good ramification.
