Summer Bonsai Wind-down

Summer Bonsai Wind-down

As the summer finally starts to wind down, it’s nice to take a step back and enjoy our deciduous bonsai in full leaf before their color starts to change and the branches become bare.

If your deciduous trees have been protected properly over the course of the summer (i.e. proper shade, watering, fertilizer, etc), they should show little sign of leaf burn at this time of year.

      Hi Jose, Trident Maple is probably the best option for the tropics, although it may peter-out and die off over the long-run.
