My next class will cover the elements of creating a bonsai specimen from nursery stock, using root pruning, branch pruning, leaf reduction and wiring. We will review the major styles of bonsai, and discuss choosing a specimen to highlight movement, perspective and scale to present a tree in miniature.
Aspects to be covered include soil requirements, zone, temperature needs, watering and winter protection. Enjoy designing your own bonsai from nursery stock, choosing a container, and learn the basics of bonsai care in this hands on class. Register on the class page at: www.portlandnursery.com
