Your Bonsai How To

The ancient art of Bonsai has always fascinated me. I remember the first bonsai tree I ever saw. It was a Japanese red maple, about 50 years old, and it surprised me that it was a real living tree and not some kind of artificial bonsai tree figurine.

The branches on the tiny tree were filled with beautiful miniature red maple leaves. How could that be? It was magical. OK, I was a kid and everything was magical...But from that one sight was born my lifelong fascination with the many facets of bonsai growing, pruning, care and display.

I hope you'll enjoy my "bonsai how to" blog.
