“I have read all the books printed in English bonsai.” Yes, I said that. . . in the 1970s! Today, it is hard to keep up. There are more legitimate bonsai artists, more technical and generally better exposure.

The print quality is better, the pictures are in color and fonts are abundant. It’s a whole new world bonsai!

Some of the books on this page are recommendations that have enjoyed in recent years and remain in my personal collection. Others are new and exciting contributions.

Reflections on used books

When you see book that seems too expensive, take a look! There may be a used copy available!

used books can be phenomenal business. Maybe it’s just luck, but when I ordered a book of “good” or “excellent” condition, which is what I have.

Font reference

Hortus Third”

The full name is Hortus Third: Concise Dictionary of plants grown in the United States and Canada

These are probably the most important plant reference books I have. (I have a 2 volume set). Originally, these books were published so hard back and ran around $ 100. Today, they are a bargain and often available “used”.

If you are a writer of garden (including bonsai) Hortus is a must.

About Your Climate

Most how-to books are not written bonsai for tropical climates. In you live in a tropical area, mostly skip chapters on the types of trees to use, seasons for plants and many mixtures of soil (unless you’re just curious.)

Find a bonsai local club for more precise instructions for your area.

Always consider the climate in which when selecting books bonsái lives and especially before deciding on a kind of grow.
