    The $1.00 Treasure...

    While Houston was flooding today, we were touring garden centers. Unfortunately most nurseries were closed but the Lowe’s wasn’t.

    Nursery pot questions

    When you have a pre-bonsai growing in a nursery pot, do you perform any manipulation of the plant (wiring, pruning etc), or just let it grow? Do the soil/substrate requirements differ for a pre-bonsai vs bonsai? How about fertiliser requirements? Cheers!
