*****SUPER HOT GRANITE NEWS !!! ******
AMAZING ITEMS PERFECT FOR YOUR JAPANESE GARDEN, HOME OR COMMERCIAL SETTING
Davidsan’s has just acquired a large assortment (500 plus) of hand carved solid granite Asian statuary (some weighing two tons or more!) This is the largest assortment of hand carved granite statuary including pagodas, lanterns, fountains, tables, benches and statuary etc. in the USA. Most of these items are one of a kind and with currency exchange, higher labor and shipping cost they are no longer imported into the USA. We have photos of each piece on the website.
Use the link below to see our new GRANITE web site http://www.davidsansgranite.com/
We can load your car, truck or trailer. Many items come in several pieces making each piece more manageable to unload and re-assemble. Remember these are not concrete or plastic sold many places. These are solid hand carved granite. We can deliver and set up these heavy items to your prepared base. Please see our “Shipping and Delivery Options” or contact me by email or phone for more info.
Here are a few photos of some of our Asian including a very large ceremonial tea table with super detailed dragon and phoenix carvings at either end carved out of a 200 year old fallen tree in China. We have three other smaller tea tables also. Hundreds more photos available for viewing on the link above. You will also see very unique hand carved wood pieces, large porcelain vases, glass gifts and many other interesting items.
*****David’s Editorial Section *****
YOU WILL NOT FIND HEALTHIER BIGGER FULLER MORE WELL BRANCHED TREES IN ANY POT SIZE THAN AT DAVIDSAN'S
YOU MAY BE ABLE TO FIND A CHEAPER SMALLER JM. BUT THAT USUALLY MEANS A PENNY WISE AND A POUND FOOLISH .. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. AND BUYING A CHEAPER TREE THAT'S BEEFED UP ON FERTILIZER WITH A SMALL ROOT BALL. JUST A FEW MONTHS OR ONE GROWING SEASON LONG (BASICALLY A BAND POT SIZE PUT IN AN OVER FERTILIZED ONE GAL POT). WILL LIKELY RESULT IN A NON TREE SHORTLY .
WHAT I MEAN BY THIS
#1 THESE QUASI ONE GALLONS WITH SMALL ROOT SYSTEMS ARE PRONE TO BEING TO WET OR TOO DRY AND THEREFORE MUCH MORE LIKELY TO DIE
#2 THESE SMALLER TREES ARE THE ULTIMATE CRITTER FOOD IF PLANTED OUT OR KEPT POTTED WITHIN CRITTER REACH
#3 YOU WILL HAVE TO WAIT YEARS TO ENJOY THEM AS JMS GROW SLOWLY IN MOST PLACES WITHIN THE USA WHICH IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR THOSE THAT ARE OVER 50 OR PLAN TO MOVE WITHIN 5 YEARS.
I SELL ONE GALLONS BUT MINE ARE TWO FULL SEASONS OLD . BUT I NEVER RECOMMEND THEM TO BEGINNERS. I ALWAYS SAY "SAVE YOUR MONEY AND BUY A BIGGER TREE" . I DO NOT SELL BAND POTS OR SMALL ONE GALS WHICH ARE BASICALLY BAND POTS. ( BAND POTS ARTE SMALL +-2" WIDE SQUARE POTS WHICH ARE +- 3" LONG. BAND POTS ARE USUALLY SOLD TO BIG SELLERS WHO BUY HUNDREDS AND THOUSANDS AND EXPECT A CERTAIN AMOUT OF DEATH RATE BUT ARE ALSO SET UP TO BETTER TAKE CARE OF THEM THAN MOST INDIVIDUAL BUYERS.
MY DREAM IS THAT THIS ONGOING QUEST FOR THE CHEAPEST TREE WILL END . I REALLY DON'T LIKE SELLING jMS LIKE SOCKS AND UNDERWEAR . I DIDN'T GET INTO THIS BUSINESS TO GET RICH BUT I DIDN'T GET INTO IT TO BE NICKELED AND DIMED EITHER. JMS AND OTHER RARE TREES SHOULD BE SEEN AS AN INVESTMENT IN SANITY AND BEAUTY AND PLEASURE. YOU ARE BUYING TIME WHEN YOU BUY AN OLDER TREE. TIME MANY OF US JUST DON'T HAVE OR CAN'T BE GUARANTEED TO HAVE.
IF YOU BUY ELSEWHERE DON'T BE SURPRISED THAT YOU WILL GET INFERIOR PRODUCTS AND SPEND MUCH MORE ON SHIPPING AND WAITING 10 DAYS SOMETIMES TO GET IT FROM THE WEST COAST. BEING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY ONLY 2-3 DAYS SHIPPING WITH FEW EXCEPTIONS... AT DAVIDSANS YOU GET HAND PICKED TREES THAT ARE BOFFO AND ARE PACKED LIKE FINE CHINA. WITH OUR PROFESSIONAL WHITE GLOVE PACKING SYSTEMS DONE BY ADULT EMPLOYEES.
I KNOW THIS BECAUSE I'VE BEEN THERE DONE THAT AS A COLLECTOR .. IF YOU ARE ON A TIGHT BUDGET JUST WAIT AND SAVE MONEY ( NOT MUCH IN MOST CASES) AND BUY FROM DAVIDSANS WHERE YOU GET A FAIR PRICE FOR A TREE THAT WILL GROW IN MOST NORMAL WEATHER CONDITIONS .. CHEAP JMS ARE USUALLY JUST THAT ... CHEAP JUNK!!
ABOUT JPEGS OF OUR TREES
UNFORTUNATELY WE CANNOT DO JPEGS OF ANY TREES LESS THAN TEN GALLONS OR GIVE EXACT SIZES ( WE CAN GIVE APPROXIMATE SIZE)...WE JUST DON'T HAVE THE TIME AND IN WINTER EVERYTHING IS STUFFED AWAY IN HEATED GREENHOUSES NOT ACCESSIBLE. BE ASSURED YOU WILL BE SENT BOFFO TREES LARGE FOR THERE POT SIZE.
IF YOU DON'T TRUST ME TO PERSONALLY MAKE SURE YOU GET THE BEST POSSIBLE PRODUCT AVAILABLE AND SUPERIOR TO ANYWHERE ELSE , THEN YOU BEST TAKE YOUR BUSINESS ELSEWHERE CAUSE SADLY I DON'T HAVE THE TIME OR ENERGY TO DO JPEGS OR SPECIFIC MEASUREMENTS ON SMALLER TREES SORRY. ONLY APPROXIMATE SIZE. LARGER TREES 10 GAL AND UP ARE MORE OF AN INVESTMENT FOR YOU AND THOSE TREES WE CAN DO "A SINGLE" JPEG AND EXACT SIZES WEATHER PERMITTING AND IN SPRING, SUMMER OR FALL NOT WINTER. I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND IT'S ME NOT YOU ;>)
AND OF COURSE IF YOU LIVE WITHIN A FEW HOURS OF US YOU ARE ALWAYS BETTER OFF STOPPING DOWN AND PICKING OUT YOUR OWN TREE. PHOTOS DO NOT DO JUSTICE TO THE TREE AND YOU MAY LIKE SOMETHING ELSE BETTER . AND WE MOST OFTEN HAVE DEALS ON FOR TREES YOU PICK UP HERE.
VISITING US IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT FOR BONSAI FOLKS .. WE HAVE LEARNED THE HARD WAY IT IS NEVER A GOOD IDEA FOR YOU AS A BIONSAI BEGINNER OR EXPERT TO BUY OVER THE INTERNET. WE NEITHER ENCOURAGE THIS OR PROMOTE IT . WE ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT DO PHOTOS FOR BONSAI FOLKS . AND WE ARE NOT ONLY DOING OURSELVES A FAVOR BUT YOU TOO ... BONSAI FOLKS SHOULD ALWAYS BUY LOCALLY OR VISIT US DIRECTLY. IF WITHIN DRIVING DISTANCE WE WANT SATISFIED CUSTOMERS .. AND BUYING OVER THE INTERNET WITH PHOTOS VIRTUALLY INSURES THAT THAT WON'T BE THE CASE
The Best Japanese Maples COME ONLY FROM DAVIDSAN'S
SO BUY, COLLECT, AND GROW ONLY THE BEST !!
