New winter quarters

6 Nov

With winter around the corner it was time to erect new winter quarters for all my small trees. Cold is not the biggest problem I find, but the wet in combination with it. Controlling the wet in your bonsai during the winter is very important especially with shohin and smaller bits.

These are positioned so they don’t get any direct sun this way on bright days the temperature does not rise as it would if the sun was on them, I have a third and that is in a position which does receive sun, this one I use to bring on trees in early spring.
