Developed with beginners and 'improving' gardeners in mind, the book shows the reader exactly how to grow and display bonsai, whether it's a broom-style zelkova Or a flowering crab apple in traditional Shohin style. A range of projects demonstrates how to create traditional styles from seedling to mature tree. Each project is shown over at least one spread, with concise step-by-step instructions and photography. The first section offers essential information for the budding bonsai Artist, while the 'help' section provides quick-reference advice on what to do when things go wrong, including how to deal with typical pests and diseases. The book ends with a comprehensive guide to all the traditional bonsai styles.
