Hello - I’m doing a bonsai in ignorance of what should be done because every time I thought of taking it up in the past, the information & purchase of equipment was so daunting to me that I froze. The only way to get over that, I thought, was just to do it & see if I’d enjoy it & look up solutions as I went along; so in Dec '14, I went online & bought myself a pine.
This is its 3rd year. The sketch is the shape I’m going for. Should I decandle the 3 prominent ones at the end of the trunk?
It is now early Spring here in London, UK, & the plant lives outside on a south facing window sill.
