I am 6 weeks into my Journey (or 1yr 2m if you include the juniper I bought last year and killed). I have a mentor/friend who is helping me get started. I have made many mistakes and I am sure I will make many more. I just hope that over time the mistakes get less and less frequent. I am trying to get off to a great start but without breaking the bank. Please let me know (if some of you could think back that far) how you got your start and what tools and supplies you got first.

Welcome to bonsai
A love of the outdoors coupled with an affinity to Japanese culture brought me to bonsai nine years ago. I started on my own, then found fellow bonsai artists in my area, then a club.
First tools were standard hardware items: pliers, wire cutters, branch lopers, pruning saw. Three years in, I purchased proper concave and knob cutters, scissors, etc. in a beginner set. Advanced tools came as I saw fit.
