Great video with Ryan Neil explaining about grafting on Pines.

The ability to cut a piece off of a plant and then reattach (graft) it back on to itself or another tree is nothing short of miraculous. Grafting is an invaluable technique in bonsai as it allows the artist to determine the location of each branch on the tree. It also allows the artist to replace the foliage as I talked about in an earlier post on approach grafting.

The success of a graft depends on two things, proper technique and proper aftercare. I’m always trying to understand both of these aspects better and had the opportunity to ask bonsai pro, Ryan Neil about his grafting technique.

Another great post on a blog I follow, this one was on Danny Use’s Blog showing the creation of a Hornbeam Forest over a number of years. Click on the image to visit the blog. It’s well worth following as regular posts are made with interesting content. Not like the tatt I serve up 🙂
