Welcome To The Blog!

Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope to share with you my experiences as a Bonsai Apprentice through these posts. I will talk about everything from specific techniques I am learning to everyday fun I have around the nursery. I hope you will enjoy!

First I would like to share a few random pictures I have taken to introduce you to the nursery.

The Big House

I like this picture a lot. Quentin Tarantino often frames a shot in many of his movies around a doorway in a similar style. Many of the doors around the nursery offer cool views much like this one.

The Garden

This was taken on a rain day, often the best days because you don’t have to water!
Hope you enjoyed these pictures and again welcome to my blog. I will try and post as often as I can so please come back and visit again soon! Thanks for reading!

    Hi Tyler,
    I’m glad you got the blog up and running. Very nice pictures. I too agree that rainy days are the best. Perhaps just an excuse to be lazy. I just, “Blame it on the rain.”

    I added a link onto my website and will do the same for the Aichien(BonsaiAichien.com) website if you can do the same. Thanks and excited to see future post.

    i noticed on those 2 new big boys that they had flowers on them. little green tennis ball like things. how do you deal with them? i get little bald spots on some branches from them – do you cut back behind them?


    • tylersherrod says:

      Paul, I believe what you are talking about on the two big red pines are actually the young pine cones. We typically cut them off each year when we notice the old needles beginning to fall off. Producing pine cones takes energy for the trees, so by cutting them off that energy will be used produce new buds and growth elsewhere on the trees. In a way it is very healthy to cut these pine cones off! Hope this helps, thanks for visiting!
