Author : David Stack

If you are planning to extend your garden or add some plants you've never raised before, now is the time to do so because there are coupon codes that offer the best deals on a wide range of products and services that will help you beautify your garden, your home, and even the plants you plan to grow.

With promotional codes, it is easy and affordable to raise the kinds of plants you have always wanted to grow. In fact, you can indulge in the rewarding hobby of growing bonsai, which are aesthetic horticultures that are created from various tree or shrub species. The aesthetic miniaturization of trees makes bonsai growing an art that has hooked many enthusiasts.

You can avail of coupons to look for a plant that has a relatively thick trunk that gives great bonsai potential, making it easy to be trained to grow in a pot by pruning the branches and roots, periodic repotting, pinching off new growth, and wiring the branches and trunk to achieve your desired shape for the plant or miniature tree.

Pruning involves meticulously trimming the bonsai so that every twig and leaf falls aesthetically in place. Carefully consider which branches need to be cut away and which ones need to stay to create a balanced form that is pleasant to the eye. To keep with the principles of bonsai, try to prune the plant in a tree-like form or how it would most likely grow in the wild.

After wiring and pruning, you can repot your bonsai into a container that complements the size of the plant. When repotting, use proper bonsai soil as well as have small pieces of mesh at hand to cover the pot's drainage holes. Trim 1/2 to 2/3 of the roots but leave most of the thin white roots or the fedder roots and also some of the thick roots. Then position the bonsai comfortably in the pot and add the rest of the soil. Don't forget to tap the pot occasionally while putting the soil in to prevent air bubbles.

After repotting your bonsai, water the plant regularly and position it in a place where it receives proper lighting to rejuvenate itself. Woody plants need strong light that is not usually found indoors, but if you must grow your bonsai indoors, position the plant next to the sunniest window of the house. However, make sure it is not too close to the glass to prevent excessive heat from building up.

Growing a bonsai involves particular care and attention, but it usually becomes a rewarding experience for any gardener especially when the plant achieves a look of awesome beauty and elicits admiration from other people. What adds to the fun is the savings you will get from using promo codes. It is this affordable and affectionate cultivation of a living thing in the comfort of your own home that makes bonsai growing a personally gratifying hobby. And the savings you get from using discount codes in your purchases will surely make you appreciate this hobby even more.
