I was traveling from Southern California to Reno just yesterday when I saw a sign saying "Bonsai trees." I bought one and it was a juniper. It is my first.
Reading through your forum about the dormancy period, would keeping it in the garage this winter suffice? It will have indirect sunlight.
Our winter nights will be cold 20*F to below zero, and the days can be as warm as in the 50's.....sometimes 60's.
As far as winter watering: would a "finger check" still be needed? misting? soaking?
As this is being posted, i am still reading- searching to do the right thing.
I have always been intrigued by the art form and have now jumped in to embrace it.
Thank you for your time,
