I am very new to the Garden Forum and find this site to be extremely helpful, if not a little overwhelming with the amount of information available!
I am buying a bonsai as a gift and would love some advice. I am looking for a "hearty" bonsai tree and don't know where to begin. I also was wondering if anyone had good recommendations for a beginner book on bonsai. Lastly, I live in the NY area and was wondering if anyone knew of a reputable place to buy a bonsai tree in the tri-state area.
