Tuesday 26th Feb 2013…

I have been unexpectedly busy watering today. This is the first time we have needed to water our outdoor bonsai in February.

Please check your outdoor trees because although it has been cold, the last 2 weeks have been surprising dry and it would be so easy to overlook bonsai which are outside and allow them to dry out.

Even deciduous bonsai, which are currently out of leaf, should be checked for water. There is no need to feed your outdoor bonsai yet – most of them are still dormant.

Wrap up warm… it’s cold out there!
