In this video we show you how to create a bonsai from cheap nursery stock material. The tree we work on is a 5-year-old Spruce (Picea abies), purchased at a local garden center for about 20 USD.

Bonsai Empire is dedicated to share the living art of Bonsai - we created this video as a DIY tutorial for beginners. The video is part of the online Bonsai courses that we offer. Within the US we also sell these Bonsai kits.
