The Creative Art of Bonsai

Author(s): Isabelle Samson; Remy Samson


Can you imagine caring for a forest of over 40,000 bonsai trees? That's what the authors do for a living, and why they have the knowledge to provide a detailed analysis of over 70 outdoor and indoor species. Their master class covers propagation--seeds, cuttings, layering and grafting; care--sunshine, ventilation, temperature, type of pot, and cleaning; growth--repotting, soil, pruning, wiring, watering, spraying, and feeding. Treated are pests and diseases, their symptoms and treatment, as well as special tools. Superb color photos and detailed line drawings help you properly train your trees. Among the species you'll learn about: conifers (cedar, cypress, juniper, spruce, pine, yew); deciduous (maple, birch, beech, oak, willow, elm); flowering and fruit trees (barberry, camellia, holly, jasmine, apple, almond, apricot, firethorn, lilac, wisteria); indoor (ampelopsis, bamboo, bougainvillea, box, fig, gardenia, schefflera).
