Overview

Learn to grow and care for decorative bonsai trees with this user-friendly Japanese gardening book.

For those with no bonsai tree growing experience, Beginning Bonsai: The Gentle Art of Miniature Tree Growing covers everything from buying the first plant for beginning bonsai to creating a miniature landscape of rocks, grasses and trees. Authors Larry and Shirley Student describe different bonsai styles, list important tools, explain pruning and pinching and introduce procedures like defoliation. They cover all aspects of how to cultivate these miniature trees, anticipating common problems and offering practical bonsai advice gained from years of working with plants.

Bonsai gardening topics include:
  • Bonsai from different sources

  • Essential techniques and materials
  • Forests, groves, and Saikei
