Introduction to Bonsai

BEGINNER

Intro to Bonsai

Learn the basics of the art of bonsai! In this class you will pick from a selection of Procumbens Juniper or Tropical Cherry pre-bonsai, then learn how to pot, prune, and care for your new tree. Juniper falls under the “cold-hardy” category of bonsai, meaning that these trees cannot live inside the home. They stay outside during Spring, Summer, and Fall, and go into dormancy from November to April. The Brush Cherry is a tropical tree and must live inside your home during the colder months of Fall and Winter. They will thrive outside during the warmer months in Spring and Summer (mid-May to mid-September).

Includes all supplies needed to participate in the class.
Cost: $90.00
