Start thinking about a bigger yard without a HOA.

Re: Beginner- cherry

Baskets and boxes with screen insets, permit air pruning of the roots. Better wooden ones are probably going to be built by you (or your significant other). They are spendy buy custon built by others (and equally spendy to ship).

Just know its possible even for a parsimonious old hippy like me to get a little shopping-drunk and fill to overflowing what ever bench space you do have.

Home Owners Association(s) can also interfere with bonsai collection. You was warned...

Re: Beginner- cherry

HOA are against collection? Do they find it unsightly? One should be able to do what they want on the own property to a certain degree (you'd think!)
Sadly, we're awhile away from home ownership but, this is good to know.

Re: Beginner- cherry

The exuberence of a new grower--collector is at times not shared by all neighbors. This can lead to your trees being condemned retroactively by the HOA.
