    Bonsai for starters

    This book is extremely informative, with great tips for the beginning Bonsai gardener. Having just received my first Bonsai this past Mother's Day, I was in search of a book that would detail Bonsai care for me in an easy-to-read, functional format. This book is such a tool.
