Our Bonsai Basics Workshop hosted right here at New England Bonsai (In Bellingham, MA), is designed to give bonsai beginners all the information they need to grow a happy, healthy bonsai tree.
1. You will have a wide selection of beginner trees to choose from. We have the luxury of growing our trees at our greenhouse in Florida which gives our students a diverse collection of trees to select from.
2. We have a proven format. We teach over 500 students each year and our instructors are highly regarded in the world of bonsai. You can be assured you will receive an excellent experience along with the knowledge needed to start this great hobby.
You'll come away with full confidence to keep your tree, train it, and turn it into a beautiful addition to your home that you'll cherish for years.
The workshop will cover:
- The Art of Bonsai
- Personalized Tour of the Bonsai Greenhouses
- Help with selection of trees and pots you’ll work with
- The basics of bonsai care: soil, fertilizer, watering, and pruning
After touring the greenhouse, selecting your tree and pot, the fun begins. The instructor will help you transform, transplant, trim, and prune your tree. after a couple of hours, you’ll get to go home with an awesome bonsai tree you know how to care for.
