bonsai tree care





bonsai general - 30 views



My parents visited Wisconsin last month, and as it seemed curious about what happens in the backyard that put them to work. They managed a little, and I’m thinking of retaining indefinitely. Father made a lot of wire removal, and a tremendous amount of weeding quite enjoyed my surprise. Mother helped with the cleaning of some plants of accent and make cuttings. Even did some preliminary mossing on a couple of plants that entered the program of the Pacific Coast.

For those of you who wish to employ parents in the backyard bonsai, it is best to train them when they are young. So I started this year.
