it appears i loaded the camera with pix of a multitude of minis around my patio ... here is the first ...

you can clearly see the spring growth .. look at last years growth, right behind it .... maybe a half to 3/4 of an inch ... that is REALLY SMALL in metric ... lol ...

there is no reason you can not collect conifers.. no matter how big your garden ....


ps: and no.. that plate is not billboard sized.. lol ..

Really tiny.

Is it trimmed to that size, or normal growth?

How old?

I had one 18 inches across.

It hung around 5-7 years and started to decline.

It's gone.

Ken's looks good and healthy.

the whole point of mini's is to not have to shear them ...

except for duplicate leader removal ... removal of broken pieces.. and hitting me in the head... i do not prune things for shape

there are a very few exceptions for things i improperly placed ... not understanding growth rate potential ...

That looks very good, Ken. My $8.99 Fanciful Gardens plant is struggling.
