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

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.

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.

What about doing these simple tips 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?
