The temperatures have finally begun to drop at night below freezing on a consistent basis. Whether or not this is going to mean a shortened winter or a shifted winter has yet to be seen. The only bonsai I still have out are the Junipers, a Shantung maple, and a Chaste Tree. The Chaste tree is still out because it still has leaves and the maple because I want to see how well it works after a hard dormancy versus a lighter dormancy in my shop.
On the other hand, the terrarium and “indoor” trees are doing well. I am going to have to pull them out and trim them since most of the tropicals are growing still and doing a darn good job of it. The Chinese Sweet Plums are especially vigorous and need a serious trimming before they get out of hand.
