Thanks everyone on this forum iam learning heaps about what I should be doing and what I shouldn't I have inherited some bonsais from my late mother who was not a real enthusiast but a realy good gardener and I have managed to keep them alive for 3 yrs now and also added to the collection and iam learning real quickly that Bunnings dosent always have good stock and that I might have to join a bonsai club
