I have always loved the look of Bonsai trees and thought they would be very hard to look after, but the more I have read about them they don't sound that hard to keep.
I have bought a few to kick of my new hobby and was looking for a bit more information. At the moment I have a small Trident maple, Juniper, Port Jackson Fig, Japanese Maple and a Chinese Elm.
What I would like to know is when to prune the maples and Chinese elm to encourage more branches and leaves. In the books that I have read stat that they should be pruned at the first or second node. Are there any sites that have step by step and pics of where and how to prune?
Also, I use Fish Emulsion liquid fertilizer for alot of my other plants, is that ok for Bonsai Trees?
Thanks in advance - Craig.
