Bonsai is the growing of a tree or plant in a shallow dish. This course covers the history about bonsai, selection of the plant, growing it, maintaining it and how to keep it pest and disease free. You will also learn about repotting of your bonsai. Participants will need to wear closed shoes and gloves as the session will involve practical activities. At the end of the class, you get to take home the bonsai that you have planted and built-in class.
