Thanks for reding my Japanese gardens blog.
I had an email from Joyce Sinton in Yorkshire in the UK requesting some information about Bonsai trees. I directed Joyce to a great manual on Bonsai trees with lots of tips and secrets , I have a link to it on the right-hand side of this page. Take a look.
Perhaps the two most important things to remember with bonsia is that watering is SO important. Some from your can if you are keeping it indoors but as you probably know you will have to leave your bonsai tree outside too. If you don’t it will not survive. Do not place them in constant direct sunlight either…they will die.
Water is the lifeblood of any plant, some species of bonsai require more watering than others.
The other important factor in growing bonsai is the maintenace of your tree. This consists of shaping, pruning and styling your trees(s). This is a real skill with a fair amount of logic to it. Once you’ve learn’t what to do it will become second nature. As I say there is a link to a really informative Bonsai manual on the right hand side of this page under the heading ‘Blogroll’.
