My son gave me a small Bonsai as a Christmas present. I’m pretty excited about it. I don’t know much about
Bonsai, except I find the practice intriguing.
When I lived in Connecticut, I had three apple trees espaliered against the garage wall. I loved taking care of those trees and the fruit was superb. I think Bonsai is similar, except I never did anything with roots on the apples. I think I’ll need to do that with the Bonsai.
Interestingly, I had purchased a book giving tips about dealing with Bonsai when I was at the Seattle Flower Show this past year. I put the little plant next to the book so you can check them both out. You can see the way the plant came out of the packaging. It had been sent by mail, so it really traveled pretty well, don’t you think?
At any rate, I am now going to try to figure out how to keep this little guy alive and thriving. I’ll attempt to keep you posted, so maybe you can learn right along with me!
