Cultivating Bonsai is a rewarding pastime that is accessible to everyone. You hardly require any room at all and you probably have most of the tools around your house and backyard. Really the only "specialist" equipment you might need to go and purchase will be a pair of chopsticks (yes, you read that correct), a Bonsai pot as well as the tree or plant which you plan to turn into your work of art.
You need a smaller set of sharp scissors as well as a larger set. You should have wire to shape the branches and fine wire cutters. A small pair of garden shears and a large set of garden shears just about completes the set but as you throw yourself more and more into Bonsai (once you've got the bug there won't be any stopping you) you will likely be thinking about buying a little more expert Bonsai equipment such as miniature Bonsai rakes and root combs. Don't stress however, the size of the price tag fits the tool size and many are incredibly inexpensive.
Where should I get Bonsai products?
Bonsai has become ever more popular around the world and no matter where you live there's a pretty good possibility that you are not very far from a Bonsai shop. Many garden shops and nurseries now additionally stock the tools you need and if you're still struggling, or even if you like to shop in the coziness of your very own house, the Internet is actually awash with suppliers of the things you might need, from compost to rakes and everything else between.
My best suggestion at this point is to find out exactly what you would like then research options and rates. Visit your neighborhood stores and also have a search on the Internet. Definitely try to build up a rapport with whoever you're purchasing from in case you ever require that vital piece of advice that can signify the difference between a small, brown conifer and a beautiful Bonsai work of art.
As well as the essential tools and particular Bonsai gear and fertilizer you can buy decorative statuary, elaborate pots and almost any other addition you could possibly imagine. The Web gives you the planet's biggest economy for any items you might want so you won't be in any way limited to the things you can purchase at the local plant store so whether your needs are for manufactured, good quality and affordable gear to hand thrown pots you will have no issue finding what you're really looking for.
