Thanx for the explanation! That helped quite a bit. I might buy it. But as any other teen like me.....I'm on a budget.(A low one at that!!
I might get it but I'm looking at other stuff too. We'll see.
Your not alone where "too advanced" comes in. Alot of the books I've seen give you a general idea with some detail. That angers me esspecially when it come to soil. I know that my trees tend to like free draining soil. I know where I can buy sme pre-made mix but it needs other items like big river sand and various other items. I also need a seive. I'm a grower that tends to lean towards deciduous trees. Don't get me wrong, I love pines and such but their just not my style.(Wow....I just noticed I got really off topic)
Anyway, I wish someone made a book on soil, how to mx it, what to look for, and what trees(like jap maple)like what soils.
I have yet to find that.
And yes, some books are way beyond us novices. I'm a novice and some noobie books confuse me. I have a theory. That is...While bonsai is fun, enjoyable, and relaxing, it can also become a burden to bare, and can create stress.
I'll keep my eyes open.
