Title: Putting bonsai in the ground
Post by: BonsaiEngineer1493 on March 09, 2014, 01:03 PM
I have two young Japanese maples with trunks that are pencil thin. I want to put them in the ground to grow out the trunks. What soil do I use in the ground and how deep should I dig?

Thanks,
Nick

you don't need any special soil in the ground.  You can mix your local dirt with some of your bonsai mix if you want.
Dig deep enough to plant your trees.  ::)

Don't forget to work the roots.

I like the washer trick. Or grow through a tile.

Im gonna experimemt with concrete too! Figure this would work on something you cant get into a predrilled hole.
