Deciduous and Coniferous TreesBook - 1996
Growing bonsai is a beautiful art that inspires tranquility and peace, yet requires precision and patience. Comprehensive profiles on each major species used in bonsai design include information on natural habitat and plant description, soil preferences, watering instructions, transplanting tips, containers, feeding, pests and diseases, and what to expect each year in terms of structure and form. Each section is completed with a summary chart of the species' individual development, month-by-month, year-by-year. Specific styles are studied in a "case history" manner from stage one -- development of mass -- to stage two -- structure and form -- through stage three -- refinement of image.
