WE hope DECEMBER was good for YOU too!
We will be closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day and new year day. Our opening hours for the rest of this period will be the same. We would like to wish all a very merry Christmas and a happy and safe new year.We are paying particular attention to watering and checking trees for any signs of heat stress. Some days require watering twice a day and I am trying to dunk bonsai at least once a fortnight. This resets the soil mass and helps watering to be more effective. Bugs and disease are prevalent at this time and consent checking is the best method of control. The new growing tips are very attractive to thrift especially on all varieties of ficus. Watering the foliage also helps control red spider mite. We continue with our fertilising program once every 3 to 4 weeks during the hotter months.December/January is the time I defoliated figs. Remember this should only be carried out on trees that are healthy.We hope you all have the time to enjoy your bonsai over the holiday period.
