Here’s my favorite from last time. It is about Bonsai trees grown in small pots.

How To Grow Super Miniature Bonsai

Did you know Bonsai come in all different shapes and sizes, from large (60cm+), medium, small, mini, and super-mini (3cm), and can be created out of almost any tree? I had no idea any tree could work. I liked this post because I was given a lovely Bonsai starter kit and never used it. I keep intending to, but I didn’t know much about the subject. Castleview Academy reviewed a book about this subject which made me realize I needed to learn something to plant and maintain the tiny exotic seeds. I also need the summer sun as there are few places plants can grow in our townhouse. It is almost summer and I just ran out of excuses for this project! If I can landscape in a little pot, I’m in. Super-mini is fine with me. 

Super Miniature Bonsai Pot Landscaping

Like goldfish, Bonsai trees grow according to the size of their surroundings. Who knew? So I can stop worrying about starting a tree that will end up needing a huge pot or to be planted outdoors. Last year, Castleview Academy attended one of the Japan Society events at the Northern Ireland Bonsai Society. She shares more information and photos at her blog post. Did you know there are actually 9 differences in Bonsai tree form? And you train the tree shape, not the roots as I always thought before. I think I know enough to be brave enough to plant the seeds now!

Thank you for linking-up, and we can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to!
