Bonsai for Beginners

PDF Attachments: 

This article was sent to us by Jorge Nazario, the BSF President. It's a very detailed treatise on all aspects of Bonsai with a full panoply of subjects: an introduction, history, trunk and Nebari rules, sunlight, fertilizer, watering, insects, moss, Bonsai soil, wiring and that's only half of it! The article finishes with a complete Glossary of Terms. Thank you, Jorge!
