Hello everyone … I have a larch that I managed to take two years ago in the mountains. It took root well but I wanted some advice on its pruning and care. I don’t know how to put pictures … Hi thanks

Dear Zamo,

the Larch certainly, like all conifers, is not a beginner’s bonsai; since you took the plant in nature I suggest you leave it for a couple of years because it will completely acclimatize in your garden; in this period try to start setting the crown and the root system, without expecting too much from your plant. Larches don’t produce a huge number of new branches every year, so before pruning, decide carefully what shape you want to give the plant. The bare wood in winter, the color of the bark, everything is particularly suitable for leaving parts of dry wood to be bleached or worked.For the whole growing season remember to pinch the shoots of new needles, to reduce their size, shortening the sprouts about a couple of centimeters. Formazine pruning is done in autumn and winter, when the plant lacks leaves. These plants can’t fear the cold, therefore they should be left outdoors all year round; in winter, when the frosts are intense, cover the pot with some non-woven fabric to prevent the ground from freezing. From Maro to October water regularly, during the cold months it prevents the soil from drying out completely, but water only sporadically, on mild days.
