By undertaking 15 complete projects, you will learn how to achieve the most popular shapes, including formal and informal upright, slanting, cascade, windswept, twin and triple trunk, and root-in-rock planting. Advice is given on the most suitable trees and shrubs to choose for your bonsai, and there is a special section on how to grow and care for tender tropical and subtropical trees such as figs and dwarf myrtle indoors. There is a comprehensive section on tools and equiment, and detailed instruction on all the basic techniques needed to achieve success. The art of displaying bonsai is just as important as the plant itself. Helpful guidance on pots and containers, accessories, stands and accent planting will help you to choose a pot that blends well with your tree, so that the final composition is a complementary and well-balanced work of art. With its accessible, step-by-step format and colour photographs, this book provides you with all the information you need to master this intriguing traditional craft.
