This is the best English language book I have seen written about this very popular, flowering bonsai species of which there are about 3000 known varieties that vary in size, shape and color. This book is a guide for growing, maintaining and shaping Satsuki bonsai (Rhododendron Indicum). In it we are introduced to fifty of the most common varieties used for bonsai and the author provides practical advice on how to grow them. The book begins with basic techniques such as repotting at spring, pruning after blooming and then covers in detail advanced techniques of grafting and styling aided by many photographs. This book gives the reader sufficient techniques to grow Satsuki bonsai; from amateur to professional.
