All are invited to come out to the nursery on the weekends when we are open and learn about styling trees while they are in the ground. Practice is the only way to gain or sharpen your bonsai skills. We will teach you on our trees at no cost to you. You can also develop trees for harvesting in the spring. Call 630-386-7585 for more information and to confirm that we will be open.
