Your Home Garden Tree – The Basics

The first thing you should do is to plan out where to place the tree.

If you are planning on making the tree a stationary tree, then make sure that it gets enough sunlight during the day and can get enough shade at night. Make sure the tree is not too close to buildings, as this can cause unwanted sun tan on it, if not properly taken care of.

Bonsai plants require plenty of watering, but also enough air circulation, you should not drown the plant in water.

If you need to water the tree, be sure to do so in the morning, when the sun is not hot, as too much water in the evening can cause root rot. Bonsai tree requires air circulation, making sure that the leaves and branches get enough fresh air. Also keep in mind that if you place your plant too close to buildings, the tree could suffer from damage. Make sure that you don’t place the tree too close to building foundations. Make sure the tree is not too close to fences, as the fence might become a foundation of the tree and kill it.

When to transplant the bonsai plant?

Well this depends on the type of plant you are transposing. Different kinds of tree need different transplanting season, so you’ll need to check what season your tree is. You’ll also need to determine when is the best time. The tree can be transplanted when the soil is wet and the temperature is 70 degrees or higher. The best time to transplant is when the soil is dry and temperatures are not 70 degrees or higher.

If you want to transplant the tree during the early spring when the soil is still damp, you should wait until the soil temperature is 80 degrees. The tree needs enough moisture to survive the winter. When the tree is dormant, you should transplant the the tree during the late fall or the early spring. The transplanting of the tree is easier when the soil is still damp. You should wait until the soil has warmed up, before transplanting. Transplanting during the winter is more risky. It could kill the tree.

What kind of soil do you need?

The soil should have lots of organic material, preferably compost, to help with the maintenance of the tree. If you’re growing the tree in your own yard, make sure you have a ready supply of compost. The tree needs moisture and nutrients to grow well, so you should apply fertilizers regularly. The soil should be loose, compact and well drained. The soil should be sandy, or slightly acid.

How can you tell when the tree has enough nutrients?

This is an easy test. Dig down to the level of the soil, if there are no roots, the tree does not have enough nutrients. You’ll know the tree has enough nutrients, if its leaves turn light green, or a lighter color. If you’re not sure, dig the tree’s roots into the ground. Once you dig deep, you can be sure the tree has enough nutrients.

When you are growing the tree, the trees needs air, water, and sunlight. Also, the sun needs to be directly behind the tree’s crown. When the tree is in the garden, the sun needs to be mostly behind the tree’s trunk. If you’re not sure, dig a tree’s roots into the ground. If you grow the tree indoors, the tree’s needs should be met, if you cannot grow the tree in your garden, then you should consider growing the tree in your home.

The easiest way to determine how much fertilizer and soil your tree needs is to simply check the leaves and branches.

If the leaves turn light green or a lighter color, then it has adequate amounts of nutrients. You should dig the roots into the ground, once you do, you’ll know the tree has enough nutrients.

If your tree’s leaves do not turn a certain color, then it has not enough nutrients. If you are growing the tree in your own yard, you should consider growing the tree in a spot that is between sun and shade. If you are using fluorescent lights, you should consider moving them around in the tree. The fluorescent lights should not be more than 4ft above the trunk of the tree. When the tree is in your home, the lights should be less than 2ft above the tree’s trunk.

The soil should be light, but compacts slightly, about as compact as a rock.

This is perfect for the tree’s roots. If the soil is too heavy, the tree’s roots will not be able to move through it efficiently. The soil should be nourishing and loose enough so that the roots can get nourishment. If the soil is too rich, the roots will not be able to absorb the necessary fertilizer in the air, thus you will be left with a tree that is extremely well nourished, but does not have the desired set of branches.

If you are planting in an existing garden, it should have soils that have an organic content of about 15%. If you are planting outside, it should have a soil content of less than 10%. Make sure your soil meets the criteria above, otherwise you will likely end up with an undesirable tree.
