In 2017 I moved from southern Florida to North Carolina. The change in gardening methods is astonishing. I went from poor sandy soil to poor clay soil. It is going to take a couple of years to amend the soil, but I have lots of time now that I'm retired. I also have a lot of Walnut and Hickory trees on the property so I am studying up on the proper methods of processing.
Just because a tree is bent doesn’t make it a bonsai.
