Thanks for reading my Japanese gardens blog.
A Bonsai tree in a Japanese garden needs the correct amount of sun and water, Maples as I posted yesterday, need a degree of shade and not loads of sunlight. A good idea is to have your Bonsai in a pot initially and then you can move it around to avoid direct sunlight in the hottest part of the day.
Bonsai trees should never be overwatered but by the same token never be allowed to dry out either. The real key to a great looking Bonsai is in the pruning, this is a delicate proceedure but if done correctly will leave you with a fine looking authentic tree. Shaping the tree should be carried out as part of the pruning process.
Bonsai are very easy to care for and the Maple variety are absolutely ideal for beginners!
