Keep in mind, the placement of your bonsai trees depends entirely on your temperatures. When the nightly temperatures are above 40 degrees, your bonsai tree will do best if placed outdoors.

After you’ve thought about what you want, consider what you can provide the plants given your environment, space and time commitment.

Find out how big your plants will be and make sure your container can accommodate that.  Almost anything can be grown in a container, even many trees! Create a one of a kind garden with a little effort and some creativity.
