We start our workshop season with Ficus retusa. Well known for aerial roots, it’s distinctive markings, but also a flower which is very unconventional. A wonderful bonsai also known for rapid growth but can adapt well if kept small with proper pruning and care. One of the most forgiving bonsai I know. Wiring techniques potting, and pruning with an emphasis on tree care are some of the topics covered.
Workshop include tools to use and all materials – tree, pottery, soil, wire, lecture/demo.
Finished trees will be taken home after the class.
Cost is $95.00.
