A full year of Boon's Tips
 
Thanks to member Felix Laughlin, we have a full year of the emails that Boon Manakitivipart sends out each month suggesting activities for the month. Not all these emails were written in the same year. Each email has been copied into Word and saved as Read Only. There is a direct link to Boon's website on the Resources page under Artists.
Please remember that Boon lives in the San Francisco Bay area, where it is never too cold or too hot, so the times he suggests for various tasks are not necessarily the right times in Asheville, but there is great information here about different techniques and different species of bonsai.
Clicking on the DOCX link will allow you to download the file.
