WINTER IS COMING

The bonsai season is all but over and winter is heading our way. More importantly, the cold, the wind and the rain are heading for our trees. As winter rolls in for us in the temperate zone, we must protect our trees. Keep your trees from getting too wet over winter. Shield your trees from harsh drying winds, especially those twiggy trees. Remember that roots in shallow pots are highly susceptible to freezing. Heeling-in our trees or placing them on the ground next to the heat of our homes is often enough protection from our mild winters. Enjoy the last days of fall and we will see you at the end of winter.
