There are many plants designed for other purposes that are turned into very good Bonsai. Even though this has been suggested as a hedge there is no reason it wont make a good Bonsai. As a for instance a Red Gum is a 45 m tree and can be turned into a very stunning Bonsai. To post on the forum for more assistance go to Board Index then Bonsai Cafe should get you started for some assistance. Cheers

From what I can gather on google this is a plant you grow into a hedge. Please tell me that I, and google, am wrong.

I'm new to this forum and can't find a way to post a question, but here goes anyway. Last Christmas my daughter gove me a bonsai (fig) which she had bought from bunnings. I figured that I needed to learn a bit about bonsai so enrolled in a course. Now I have the fig, which is doing well, and a Juniper. I've been happy with these two trees, they have certainlyu given me an interest that I never had before. Jump forward to today, all three daughters gave me a "Bonsai" and a card that brought tears to my eyes. How do I tell them that something that costs $20 from Bunnings is not a Bonsai? It is an "Euonymus Japonicus" "Tom Thumb"

I have a bonsai that was given to me by my dad and is approximately 15yrs old. I have not maintained it and it needs some desperate love and care. I wanted to join here for advise. I have photos if I can post them for suggestions??

Noticed some talk about Arbutus Unedo(Strawberry Bush Irish) some time ago but little since. Obtained one through Craig at local club CBS. Has been left in same position Winter & Summer and grows beatifully producing loads of flowers but no fruit. It is a Shohin so maybe fruit some years off.

how do you put up a new post

March 2nd, 2017, 8:50 am

moving from Sydney to Melbourne. Best place to locate my new "Bonsaiery" is under a very large Cyprus Pine. I will have a watering system in place. Was wondering if the pine needles are going to be a problem for the soil in my pots. Do the needles produce a "toxin" which is not suited to this being a good location. Judy
