Rock Plantings are a great way to learn perspective and scale. Rock Plantings are more associated with the art of Penjing than Bonsai as they tend to be more about accentuating the natural feel of the stone and trees and not so much about the individuality of the trees themselves. We will learn what trees need to be happy mounted on stone and not planted in a pot. We will talk about soils, fertilization and proper aftercare for your new creations.
This is not a class we will be able to offer often and there are limited seats so act quickly.
