Helping a flowering bonsai to flourish takes something of an artist's touch. Everything from potting to cutting to feeding, to the glory of a flowering bonsai is here. Propagate bonsai from cuttings and seedlings, and the proper time to pot them. Pick the best shape for your particular plant and then begin one of the most important tasks: pruning your tree. This ensures the plant's design, and that light, water, and air will be spread evenly throughout, nourishing every root and branch. Diagrams detail exactly where to trim to redirect growth energy, create finer foliage texture, improve drainage, rejuvenate the root system, eliminate pests, and promote the growth of striking flowers. A special section explores fast-grown bonsai; other bonsai receive species-by-species coverage, with detailed instructions. Learn about seasonal care, feeding requirements, and pests and diseases that might afflict your breed.
