excellent value, and shows character.

Description: This month's Bonsai has been chosen by Liana specifically for its fast growth, colour, flower production and training possibilities. Jacaranda trees are deciduous. They live through a cycle of fast growth in spring to summer, flower and seed production in summer to autumn, rest in winter and new growth in spring. A Bonsai without a trim will grow lanky and out of shape so a regular snip of tall shoots will aid in branch formation and compact style.
Daily watering and partial shade is necessary for this Bonsai to thrive. It is not an indoor Bonsai and will die without real sun and outdoor moisture. Partial shade will stop the fine foliage from burning but too much shade will make it soft and weak. 50-70% shade cloth in a sunny, bright spot is perfect. I’ve added a Flowering Quince and a Pomegranate to the planting. These will produce flowers and fruit so if the Jacaranda fails to flower, other Bonsai will. The Kurrajong is added for leaf and trunk texture. This is an eclectic mix of trees, all working in harmony in their growing space and sharing nutrition. This makes it safe for a variety of different fertilizers and daily watering without problems. As each Bonsai finds its path and evolves, it can be separated to create an individual Bonsai. Each tree will produce leaves, flowers and fruit at different times giving a 12 month evolving scene in one pot. A portable garden...!
