    Bonsai trees.

    Is anyone else here interested or grows bonsai?
    I have always been interested in bonsai trees for sometime but have only just got into it.
    Here are the bonsai trees I have at the moment, will be getting more in the future.
    If anyone else has some, feel free to post some pics.

    Most of the native drought tolerant plants I have around my place have been dying from the heat, so I figured I would give the bonsai trees a try. The local Bunnings here has some nice ones for sale. They have a big Japanese Black Pine for $230, very tempted to buy it.

    I know a lady that has heaps and heaps, she has opened her own shop off her house and sells them. I didnt realise they were worth so much

    Haha im not sure you'd find much info on google! they arn't hard to grow they just dont have much form to work with while they are small so people don't tend to use them!

    not to the extent your imagening! the fruit can be somewhat smaller than normal though! if you wanted something that looked like an apple tree you would have to use something like a crab apple Malus sargenti not mine but heres a pic for an example
