EASY WAY OF MAKING BONSAI

TO MOST OF US BONSAI SOUNDS GREEK BUT LET ME TELL YOU IT IS ONE OF THE MOST INTERESTING AND CREATIVE HOBBY THAT ONE CAN HAVE.

BEGINNERS REQUIREMENTS

1. BONSAI TOOLS -A BONSAI BRANCH PRUNNER,A PAIR OF SHORTHANDED SCISSORS.

2.PLANTS-CUTTINGS FROM NURSERY,SEEDLINGS ,OR PLANTS

3.EASY BONSAIS ARE -BANYAN,PEE PAL,SCOTS PINE,BEECH ,ALMOND ,APPLE,CITRUS PLANTS,HORSE CHESTNUT,MANGO,FIR, LURCH ETC.

4.I OFTEN COLLECT NATURAL BONSAIS GROWING NEAR WATER TANKS ON ROOF TOPS,FROM SCRUBBY JUNGLES THIS SAVES GROWING TIME.

5.BONSAI POTS ARE QUIET EXPENSIVE BEGINNERS CAN USE GLASS VASES THAT LOOK BONSAI POTS (MAKE HOLES AT THE BOTTOM FOR DRAINAGE)I PREFER USING CLAY POTS.

6.SOIL FOR PLANTING BONSAI-A MIXTURE OF -CHICK PEA GRIT,SAND,LEAF MOLD,GRAVEL, AND NORMAL GARDEN SOIL.

METHOD

1.TRIM THE FINE ROOTS OF THE SEEDLING,

2.PUTĀ  A FEW A FEW PIECES OF STONE TO COVER THE HOLE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POT,PUT A FINE LAYER OF SOIL.

3.BALANCE THE SAPLING AND PUT IN THE REST OF THE SOIL.

4.MOST IS MOST ABUNDANTLY FOUND IN THE MOIST PLACES IN OUR GARDEN IF NOT CAN BE BOUGHT FROM THE NURSERY,COVER THE TOP LAYER WITH MOSS.THIS HELPS TO RETAIN WATER.

THE SEEDLING MAY SHED LEAVES DO NOT WORRY IT IS BUT NORMAL,WATER SPARINGLY
