This practical, beautifully illustrated step-by-step guide is packed with ideas for creating superb bonsai. By undertaking 15 complete projects, you will learn how to achieve the most popular shapes, including formal and informal upright, slanting, cascade, windswept, twin and triple trunk, and root-in-rock planting. Advice is given on the most suitable trees and shrubs to choose for your bonsai, and there is a special section on how to grow and care for tender tropical and subtropical trees such as figs and dwarf myrtle indoors. There is a comprehensive section on tools and equiment, and detailed instruction on all the basic techniques needed to achieve success. The art of displaying bonsai is just as important as the plant itself. Helpful guidance on pots and containers, accessories, stands and accent planting will help you to choose a pot that blends well with your tree, so that the final composition is a complementary and well-balanced work of art. With its accessible, step-by-step format and colour photographs, this book provides you with all the information you need to master this intriguing traditional craft. Ken Norman's bonsai work won the Guild of Garden Writer's highly presitigious Enthusiast's Book Of The Year for 2006, and the author is also a multiple Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medal winner.

Great book, although it is all contained in the complete bonsai encylopedia by the same author but much easer to handle. All the projects are easley followed and easy to reproduce
