Seasonal Tips
Mid Summer: JUL
  • Watch for signs of heat stress - Move Maples to shade.
  • Fertilizing: Water trees first, then fertilize in morning or evening; not in mid-day heat.
  • Begin transitioning to 0-10-10 fertilizer to prep for seasonal change.
  • Prune flowering trees now for shape.
  • Pinch and prune maples.

The Boise Bonsai Society (BBS) is a group of dedicated bonsai enthusiasts from the greater Boise, Idaho area. Our goal is to educate both our members and the general public in the art form known as 'Bonsai' (pronounced 'bone-sigh'), the ancient Asian art of growing miniature trees in pots. Our club holds bonsai workshops, collecting trips, and annual shows throughout the year. All levels of ability are welcome!
