Creating beautiful, healthy bonsai is a wonderful skill that anyone can learn, with a little time, patience, and this all-inclusive manual. With color photos and drawings to illustrate the points, it introduces all the cultivation techniques; offers expert advice on location, soil types, watering, and pest control; and provides intricate instruction on training the bonsai--including pruning, wiring and stretching it. An A-to-Z guide of all the popular species showcases varieties that range from a flowering Camellia Japonica, with its beautiful smooth stem, to an easy-to-care for Olive tree. Each entry gives some background on the plant, and includes suggestions for acquiring the bonsai and directions on how to position it in the room for best results.

They say 'don't judge a book by its cover', but in this case it's difficult to avoid. Only a few specific tree species can be kept indoors and larch isn't one of them. The tree on the front cover definitely wasn't grown indoors. This doesn't give much confidence about the contents of the book. The book should be called 'how to kill bonsai trees, for beginners'.
