The Japanese and Chinese have been creating bonsai trees for centuries and it is now an internationally popular pastime. This compact and stylish guide will provide everything you need to know to grow bonsai successfully, including shaping with wires, watering, seasonal maintenance, tackling common ailments, choosing the right container, feeding and repotting. A directory of over 90 of the most popular species, illustrated with beautiful photographs, will enable you to find the tree that is right for you.
There is a lot of information about all sorts of trees in this book. Now it doesn’t cover every type of tree out there, but I’m sure it’s close to doing so!
I highly recommend this book for beginners. It helps explain a few things you should know before owning a bonsai of any type. It does a great job of covering all the basics and a few of the “intermediate” techniques.
Do you see the price? And the page numbers? That’s a lot of book for a small amount of money! Definitely worth it!
