Spring Maintenance of My Bonsai Trees
As Spring rolls in, my Bonsai Collection is exploding with new growth. Time for Spring Maintenance. This is a busy time, I am non-stop trimming back the new growth coming in. On my Ficus Bonsai I use this as an opportunity to top off each tip of new growth. Trimming these tips at strategic angles reduces the leaf size and keeps the foliage in dense 4×4 clusters.
I also introduced a once to twice a week regimen of adding natural fish fertilizer – 6-1-1 and SuperThrive. These are mixed into the watering can and applied while watering the Bonsai Trees.
