|Our Special Bonsai of the Month:
This is Liana's special
Bonsai, one which she personally feels is worthy
of note because it is a promising specimen,
excellent value, and shows character.

Date of Birth: 2007
Cultivation: Prefers light to medium soil, in an open sunny position. Drought and frost resistant. Keep moist. Feed dilute food regularly. Trim odd shoots and keep compact. Direct sunlight suitable for one hour per day. 50% shade cloth ideal for long life. Winter is time to cut leaves in half (forms ‘branches’) and apply wire (shaping).

Age - 12 years
Pot – 32 x 24 x 8 cm Ceramic, rectangular, glazed, blue, Japanese
I obtained a stump cutting from a Willow Leaf Fig tree in 2007 and have cultivated it into a hardy, interesting Bonsai that has potential to change and improve. Its long, slender leaves, fast growth, resistance to pests and adaptability make it a wonderful and rare species of Fig Bonsai for any collector.
If you are not sure of your responsibility for our current Bonsai Of the Month, please note:
1. Prefers to live in a protected, part shade area but outdoors.
2. Prefers to be watered deeply once a week, much less often in winter and more often in summer.
3. A slow growing Fig during autumn and winter, it will require very little maintenance.
4. Wiring, branch shaping and leaf pinching is easily managed with this species of tree.
All Bonsai Palace Bonsai are presented with a Bonsai Birth Certificate and detailed care instructions. Also, we offer a free ‘feed and groom’ for each Bonsai within three months of purchase. Just visit Liana at the Palmyra Market on a Sunday for free Bonsai advice.
