Bonsai Tree
Event Description:
Bonsai refers to the training and artistic vision applied to a tree; ultimately giving the illusion of an aged miniature tree in nature.
 
Learn how to design and maintain your own Bonsai tree during this class taught by Daniel Quiroz-Portella and members of the Yakima Valley Bonsai Society. Receive instruction on plant style, design, tree placement, pot preparation, basic plant care, and soil mixtures. Bonsai Siberian Elm
 
Bonsai trees that you pot and grow yourself have a better chance of survival than mass produced pre-potted trees you buy online or in some stores.
 
Each student attending the class will receive, not only their own small tree to begin shaping and designing, but a bonsai pot, soil, wire, and plenty of informational material to get you started right.
 
*Please bring a small wire cutter, small branch pruner, and/or pliers if available.
 
Class size limited to 12 students for plenty of personalized attention.
