I do this many times throughout the growing season - hedge trimming.  Walther Pall has an excellent article on the subject, read it here.  It is a great tool for development of your trees.  I mean why not hedge if it is not a show tree, who cares if the leaves get cut.  Anyway, here is the technique applied to a couple of elms - a winged elm and a zelcova.  In case you did not know, zelcova is short for Japanese gray-barked elm.


I see this question asked a lot on various bonsai forums and, at times, on Facebook so I thought I would write and article about how I treat my azaleas post flowering. Before I get started, let me offer this little disclaimer:


This is by no means the only way to treat them or am I claiming that this is the right way. There is a lot of conflicting information out there on the ‘net about azaleas in bonsai culture.
