The Bonsai progressions all show before and after shots of Bonsai trees being styled by experts. A great way to learn the basics of styling trees.
It’s amusing how sometimes what in nature would be considered bizarre and grotesque, to us in Bonsai, is something beautiful that gives our plants a special charm. In 2006 I had the opportunity to purchase this very interesting araki pine, (Pinus sylvestris), collected the previous year in France.
Satsuki azaleas are increasingly popular among western Bonsai enthusiasts. If you fulfill their special needs (never let them dry out, water with rain water, use special soil and fertilizer) they are very easy to care for and delight their owners with beautiful flowers every year.
