Bonsai Resolutions for 2018 and on:

I will:

• Transplant every bonsai that needs it on time.

• Fertilize on schedule...taking care to use the right amounts at the right times.

• Complete wiring before winter is over.

• Remove wire before damage occurs.

• Spend time trimming each day in the growing season to develop better ramification.

• Study each species throughly to apply the right techniques to the right trees.

• Make sure that the ground landscaping does not block the light from the bonsai.

• Spend a concentrated time each day working on the bonsai...not just for watering.

• Develop some new bonsai.

• Remove trees from the collection that will never develop into good bonsai.

• Share my knowledge with friends.
