      My apple tree

      I just love this tree. The trunk is thick (5 inches) and twisted with a dead vein running all the way up the tree. Iíve had this tree for 15 years.

      It should not need another pollinator too bloom. Is it a known variety or a seedling,I have had some seedlings not bloom.

      How deep & for how long do you keep it buried? How tall is it? Could it be placed inside of a garage or shed for the winter?

      I just bury the pot in lose soil. I have a screened in porch that has thick plastic covers that snap on in the winter but Iíve lost a few really nice trees in there.

      That tree is gorgeous! I love bonsai trees. Do you still have to wire it repeatedly to maintain or change it's shape or has it reached full growth?
