Coussins packs this substantial, lavishly illustrated guide to Japan's ancient art of bonsai with everything from a refresher course on the basics--watering, feeding, pruning, wiring, and repotting--to advanced techniques for those seeking nothing less than a total horticultural and aesthetic journey. Technically, bonsai is a tree with roots and foliage pruned to generate multiple growth points and reduce the distance between these internodes for greater strength. Step-by-step instructions with photos guide readers through the various skills necessary for maintaining bonsai, and Coussins demonstrates techniques using pines, yews, azaleas, junipers, and more, as carving, trunk splitting, trunk fusing, and manufactured deadwood create numerous horticultural visions. Using detailed listings of bonsai styles, tree names, and even heights (from thimble to 65 inches) in Japanese and English, Coussins provides a complete guide for novices and bonsai artists.
