Hi
I has anyone here got any any experience with herb bonsai?
I have an extensive herb garden at home and would like to bonsai some of them.
I have a lot of thyme growing as well as mint. What should I do to start?

Thanks!

Perennial Salvia, rosemary (difficult!), and some of the rock garden herbs for mame/accents.

Herb bonsai

Hi Hoboman - I thought that the following picture might make you try Rosemary as bonsai.
This tree is approx. 20 yrs. old and is very easy to maintain - quick clip with shears maybe twice a year.
Potted in Cat litter, fed on Tomato fert several times a year.
