Course introduction

The Advanced Bonsai Course 2 is the long awaited sequel with more in-depth content than ever. Instructor Bjorn Bjorholm guides you through the long-term impact of techniques on a wide variety of tree species. Learn about pad creation for exhibition, branch splitting on conifers and establishing a great Nebari with air-layered deciduous material. Understand how to fertilize trees in different stages and the effects of macro and micronutrients on plants.

But this course is not exclusively about advanced techniques. It also discusses the aesthetics of traditional and contemporary Bonsai display, from the tokonoma to the exhibition hall. With almost 6 hours of lectures, this is one of the most extensive courses we've ever created.
