Juniper Bonsai

Juniper Bonsai Juniper Bonsai Trees are very popular nowadays. They should be grown outside in a sheltered position where they will not suffer from the hot sun. Some enthusiasts construct eye-level shelving against a wall or fence to stage their bonsai collection.

Cultivation and care of bonsai is a rather specialist area, though certainly not difficult and well within the scope of the keen amateur. Young juniper trees for bonsai must be pruned and wire trained to achieve the style desired. There are many bonsai styles and effects that can be achieved, most attempting to capture what might happen to a wind-blasted wild juniper tree growing in unfavourable conditions in the wild. In bonsai junipers this extreme is 'idealised', just as in a traditional Japanese garden, where the 'perfect' natural scene is sought.

Aside from careful and patient pruning of the twigs, and training of the trunk and branches, root pruning must be practised at the right time of year too, though a tree will probably last for a few years without it, if carefully fed and watered. As bonsai junipers are grown in such a shallow container their needs for water in particular must be carefully attended to.
