Since being bitten by the bonsai bug , I've been reading everything I can find on every subject regarding bonsai- from basic tree biology ( very helpful to me, someone who previously only grew house plants) growing techniques, collecting from wild, producing great ramification /nebari etc
I've read P.Chan's "BonsÃ¡i Secrets". I was lucky & found 2 older books at goodwill hardcover "BonsÃ¡i: Miniature Potted Trees" by Kyuzo Murata ( a mere dollar !) & for .50cents "BonsÃ¡i for Indoors" by Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, published in 1984. Great articles & drawings by J.Naka, C.Deriderian, f. Okamura & many others whose names are well known.
I'd LOVE any suggestions on subscriptions to any monthly or bi-monthly periodicals especially!!!
Has anyone read "Collecting from the Wild" by Nick Lenz? I was considering ordering it.
I've heard of "101 Esstential Tips" by H.Tomlinson but, I'm unsure if it just (mostly) reiterates what I've already read. Also interested in "Ficus, The Exotic BonsÃ¡i" Meislik
If anyone has ANY books they'd part w/ I'd be happy to negotiate fair price & pay for the shipping naturally. ANY ALL suggestions on blogs, articles, artists, magazines & books you found helpful!!! My 3 local bookstores NONE had a single title on bonsai!
