President's Message

Late summer  = (hot weather?) High temps, then a bit cooler lately. Take care not to be deceived into doing major work on your bonsai even if the weather does seem temporarily cooler. Major work, root pruning, major trimming, grafting etc. is very stressful and high temps combined with major work can mean the demise of our carefully crafted works of art. They, much like we, can only take so much stress, and something gives! Just as we try not to perform major tasks when we’re weak or tired, the same principle applies when working on a weakened tree. (one that is lack luster, yellowed leaves, evergreens that are pale, trees that are just not budding and growing) A happy growing tree just oozes excitement and says to the artist let’s get too it what do we do next? Maintenance pruning should continue, take a look and plan what to do when the cooler growing season arrives. What is my long term plan, next pot for this tree etc.

Research, learn and enjoy this wonderful art. Join a local bonsai group – an amazingly broad array of experiences and knowledge will be instantly available. For those who must invent their own wheel, we wish you much luck and may you lose a limited number of trees as you learn.
