Publisher Comments:

His classic bestselling book is now in paperback for the first time. A world-famous expert gives all the advice you'll need to master the practical side of growing as well as great ideas and illustrations to stimulate your creativity. Find out: — Which trees and dishes to use — How to shape your bonsai correctly — Which style will get the very best growing results. Then go on to learn all the essentials of cultivation: — Propagation — Training — Pruning — Feeding — Siting — Potting — Pest and disease prevention. The different styles of bonsai covered include trees with several trunks, group plantings, rock plantings, saikei or miniature landscapes, and the Mame and Moyogi varieties. Grow your tree from seeds or cuttings; use the ground layering method of propagation; find a bonsai in the wild; and graft plants. Thicken the trunk or branches, artificially age your tree, or use wiring techniques to gently prod your bonsai into the desired shape. Keep the plant in excellent condition by pruning the roots, applying moss and other ground cover, and giving it just the right amount of food and water. Indoor bonsai gardeners can check out the wide variety of subtropical, tropical, and coldhouse plants. Over 150 color illustrations, and 200 line drawings, take you through every stage and display every facet of the bonsai's beauty.
