Beginners help

Post  Grant Chambers on Sun Mar 09, 2014 7:20 pm

Hi everyone I've just joined and only just bought my first bonsai,

I bought it from a local garden centre but it had nothing on it to tell me what type it was so was hoping you might help me identify it and advice me on how to care for it. I have read some guide online and think i have it is in a good position on my bedroom windowsill northish facing so it gets some sun light in the afternoon but not all day. I have bought a bonsai drip feeder which i have set up in the soil.

Any help and advice on how to care for my bonsai is much appreciated and also I'm a complete beginner so any advice or good website appreciated.

Here it is much appreciated,

Grant.

A lot of the garden centres over here are selling Buxus sempervirens balls just now so I suspect you guys are right. Whereabouts in London are you, Grant as there's a good show later in the year up at Capel Manor in Enfield.
