What is the best way to winter outdoor bonsai in 9a reagion ( Charleston, SC ). I have a bald cypress, Shimpaku Juniper, Mongo pine, and 2 maples. Question do I leave them outside protected by mulch, or inside a shed in the dark for 3 months

bwaynef:
Welcome to the board.  With those trees in 9a, I think placing them on the ground would be sufficient.  There are others who grow bonsai in that part of the state that might be able to offer specific advice.

I put my trees on the ground and let oak leaves collect around the trees and they overwinter fine.  I try to keep the leaves off the foliage/trunks just so they're not unnecessarily shaded.

augustine:
I'm with Wayne, just place on ground. 9A should be a piece of cake.

It would not hurt to place them out of the wind if possible, but this is not essential.

Larry Gockley:
Don't know if you have fire ants in your area, but here in Texas, putting anything on the ground is a big mistake.

AnnaAlicie:
What about doing these simple tips http://inthebackyard.ca/6-additions-for-your-backyard-this-winter/ for the outdoor bonsai? Will this light setting and warming can be used for maintaining the bonsai during the winter? Will these bring an effect? I am living in Toronto. What do you recommend me to do?
