You will be shown many trees used in bonsai and discuss their nuances to what makes a good bonsai, along with wiring exercises and a repotting demo. Also discussed will be techniques in styling, wire, soils, fertilizers, tools, repotting, along with general and winter care. Then you will have a knowledge base to choose a bonsai that will give you years of pleasure.

If you already have a tree, I will assess and help you get it to the next level.

Pay through the website (below) and an email will be sent to me. At which time you and I can choose a date/time to schedule your class.

This class can be done at almost any time. Give me a couple of dates and times that work for you and we should be able to figure something out.
