Do You Love the Miniature Gardens of Japan But Don’t Think You Can Afford to Buy the Most Exquisite of Bonsai?
Grow Your Own Bonsai Without Spending A Fortune!
"Step-by-Step Guide Reveals The Secrets
From Ruth Morgan
Dear Fellow Bonsai Enthusiast!
Are you interested in growing beautiful bonsai trees?
Do you feel overwhelmed by the amount of information about bonsai on the internet?
Would you like a step by step guide to help you grow and develop your bonsai trees so that they are admired by your family and friends?
Do you have a limited budget and want excellent value for your money?
A few years ago I answered yes to all those questions. You see I had just encountered bonsai trees for the first time at a gardening exhibition. I was wandering around the displays when I saw a dozen tiny trees in one corner of the marquee.
I was fascinated and couldn't stop staring at them. I thought they were so beautiful but had no idea what they were called or how they had been grown. But one thing I did know - I wanted to learn more about them and one day to grow them myself.
And that was the start of my bonsai journey.
Since then I have experienced the frustration of trying to find the information and help that I needed to grow beautiful bonsai trees.
One thing's for sure - lack of information is not the problem. If you enter 'bonsai trees' in an internet search engine you get millions of results - literally!
What good is that for a busy person who doesn't have time to click on them all and work out what's going to be most helpful? I found a ton of information - a lot of it dealing with advanced techniques and using language and jargon that isn't in the normal person's vocabulary!
So I confess that I was struggling. But then I had some good fortune. I came across a person who had been a bonsai enthusiast for many years. He was very knowledgeable, but more than that, he was hugely enthusiastic and willing to share his wisdom and experience of bonsai.
I learnt such a lot in a short space of time. He understood that I didn't need to be lectured on every advanced bonsai technique.
What I needed was answers to some questions:
How do I start a bonsai tree?
Where can I grow bonsai?
What types of plants are suitable for bonsai?
What do I need to know about the design of bonsai?
What are the different styles of bonsai?
What tools and equipment do I need?
How do I develop a bonsai?
How do I choose a bonsai pot?
What soil do I use?
How do I prune a bonsai?
How do I wire and shape a bonsai?
What care does a bonsai need?
How do I choose a suitable species of tree?
What good sources of information are available on the internet?
Well, I got the answers to all these questions. I found good reference material in books and on the internet. I was able to watch him and other bonsai experts working on their trees and applying the techniques in practice. And I developed my own skills by working on bonsai trees myself.
The whole learning experience was a real joy and it was great to become part of a 'worldwide bonsai family'. The thrill of fashioning and creating a beautiful bonsai is amazing and very rewarding.
Being a keen student I was careful to make lots of notes about all the knowledge I gained and the tips and secrets that I learnt.
One day I was chatting (enthusiastically!) to a friend of mine about bonsai trees. I told him the story of how I became interested in bonsai and the frustrations that I had faced in trying to get help to grow bonsai trees.
At some stage during the conversation he challenged me to write a book that was easy to understand and that would give straightforward, helpful information about growing bonsai as a hobby. My first reaction was to say "That would be quite a challenge!"
But then I thought about how much help I had received from others. To be honest, I probably would have given up without it. And because I didn't want that to happen to anyone else I decided to take him up on the challenge. So that's how Beautiful Bonsai Secrets came into existence.
If you are interested in bonsai I would like to help you develop this fascinating hobby. I want to pass on to you all the tips, hints and secrets that I have learnt over the years.
When I wrote Beautiful Bonsai Secrets I had two aims in mind
My first aim was to create an introductory eBook that would teach the novice everything that is necessary for growing beautiful bonsai trees without being too wordy.
My second aim was to create an eBook that could also function as a valuable resource that more experienced cultivators of bonsai trees could come back to again and again for good solid advice.
So whether you are now to the art of growing bonsai trees or whether you have been growing them for some years, Beautiful Bonsai Secrets will be of great benefit to you.
We respect your privacy. We never reveal,
Are You Ready to Buy and Grow Your Own Pruned
In order to convey how fun and relaxing growing Bonsai is as a hobby I have gone to great lengths to write this eBook in a friendly, and easy to understand style. I believe in being to the point, positive and educational without being boring.
I wrote it from my own former perspective of someone who was once very new to the fine art of pruning and training bonsai.
I remember being afraid that I was going to spend a lot of money for a precious plant and then kill it before I was able to achieve the desired miniature effect.
So what kind of information can you expect to find in this guide to growing your own Bonsai trees?

Are You Ready to Cultivate Your Own Bonsai Trees and Perhaps Even Go Into Business Selling Them?
I pride myself on the fact that this is a very practical book. There is theory in it but it does not overwhelm the nuts and bolts reality of actually growing these small high maintenance trees.
I give you absolute definitions that are easy to understand without burying their "raison d’être" in theories about Eastern mysticism. However there are lots of references made in the eBook to the fact that in the end this is an aesthetic gardening practice that can help you build excellent qualities of character.
To clarify things I have also made sure that this eBook is full of pictures and step by step instructions that fill you in on exactly how to prune and train a bonsai tree.
Many of the photographs that you see in the eBook are from real life examples and include material from the Bonsai collections of other enthusiasts and sellers of Bonsai.
If you are looking for a ‘how to manual’ for every advanced bonsai technique known then don’t buy this eBook. Such a book would run to hundreds, if not thousands, of pages. And it would probably be far too daunting for those who are relatively new to bonsai. That is not my aim in Beautiful Bonsai Secrets.
But if you want a straightforward, easy to read and easy to understand step by step guide to designing, growing and caring for your bonsai tree then this is the book for you.
My aim is very simple – to get you started and to keep you going.

Why am I taking all the risk on myself? Because I believe in the methods that I have written about in Beautiful Bonsai Secrets.
