Spring is here and I am getting out my Bonsai. The Library is a good source for books on how create and take care of these miniature trees. The Bonsai Workshop by Herb L. Gustafson has an excellant section on pruning. It not only describes how to do it but why and when. The Creative Art of Bonsai by Isabelle and Remy Samson details the techniques and care used for different kinds of trees. It has a picture for each kind of tree. Looking at this book gave me lots of ideas of things I would like to try. Ortho's All About Bonsai has an excellant section on diseases and pest, with good advice on how to deal with them.
