Birch # 000001
" ...Not worth the effort...."
"A great species for bonsai"
Simple statements. Different weight though if said by a bonsai novice or by someone who has thousands of admirers /followers.
Birch is easy to grow. Give it what it needs for happy life and it
will reward you. Fail with the basic horticulture and the tree will
give you a clear feedback. Withering up of some branches that the tree
consider as not important. Thats it.
Two of my birches have lost some branches this year. Something that happened for the first time with these trees. A random visitor of my place said: Yeahh, thats always a problem with birches" . NO. That is NOT a problem with the species as such. It was my problem with not adequate watering in the season before. Too much of other activities and not enough care of my trees. Why should I blame the tree for my faults?
