Bonsai Resolutions for 2017 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.
