Bonsai Success In Southern Africa

Recommended Price

About the book: 

In this uniquely Southern African book, Carl Morrow and Keith Kirsten guide readers step by step into the magical realms of bonsai as a hobby, horticultural practice and art form. 

The contents reflect the natural progression most people follow as their interest grows, and includes keeping your first tree or two alive and thriving, the basic techniques and skills to shape your trees and add to your collection, and the advanced skills and underlying philosophy needed for advancing in the art. 

This edition has been revised and updated in both content and illustrative material. The species list at the end of the book is a guide to popular trees in the Southern African bonsai context and is illustrated for ease of identification.

Bonsai success in Southern Africa is the perfect 'teacher' for those making their first foray into this fascinating and rewarding art, as well as for more experienced bonsai growers.
