Publisher Comments:

@new: NEW IN PAPERBACK @title: It's easy to grow miniature bonsai--the tiniest of the small plants, only 10 inches high or less, and yet exquisitely shaped--when you follow the authoritative advice here. They have distinct advantages in size alone: pruning can be finished in a matter of minutes, potting is simple, and it's possible to style one right on the kitchen table in half an hour! Noted bonsai expert and best-selling author Herb Gustafson gives you the basics of design and development, including the five basic styles; training techniques; creating miniature bonsai by propagation, from nursery stock, and more; and care and maintenance, such as watering, weeding, and emergency treatment. Everything you need to know about tools and equipment, from wiring and training devices to the work area and growing containers, is completely covered. Bonus: seasonal and species checklists and plants recommended for miniature bonsai. The author lives in Eugene, OR. 192 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 11.

Synopsis:

Perfect for the novice, miniature bonsai can be formed from tiny seedlings found in the yard or at a park. Unlike their larger relatives, these palm-size trees can be potted, shaped, and pruned in only an hour or two. They're easy to manage and transport, and require little space. Find everything you need to enter the magical realm of miniature bonsai, including required tools and equipment, design, and training techniques. See how to select an appropriate container, decide on the best style for a particular tree, and properly display it. All care and maintenance concerns are covered.

Synopsis:

Unlike their larger relatives, these palm-size trees can be potted, shaped, and pruned in only an hour or two, are easy to manage, and require little space. “A guide for the novice that explains the preparation, watering, weeding and seasonal care of bonsai as well as which pests and diseases may affect the plants....A list of 200 plants presents specifics.”—The Cleveland Plain Dealer.
