    Only gravel, no soil (?)

    Hi everyone, I'm a first-time bonsai owner - trying very hard to keep my first one! I received a Juniper (Juniper procumbens nana) a few days ago.

    Styling Advise on an Unknown Collected Juniper

    First, yes, I know that the foliage isn't good. Please ignore the color for now. I haven't decided what I am going to do about that yet. I collected this Juniper a couple years ago now and have yet to figure out what to do with it. That probably tells me everything I need to know but I'm not...

    Is This Root Rot?

    We've had mental weather here in Sweden lately, with the temperatures going from -2 to +25c.. Most of my garden seems very confused as to what season it is, and my bonsai trees have been hit the worst. I've been trying to rule out what could possibly be wrong with this juniper. Is this root rot...

    Am I overwintering or do I have a greenhouse?

    I've debated a ton on how I'm going to overwinter my Juniper Bonsai. Leave it in the pot on the ground, buried in the ground, the garage(I thought this would kill it, but I guess it can be done) and finally use my egress window. I felt the egress window would be best, as it would keep the snow...
