It heats up around here. Watering three times a day at the moment. Hot weather demands extra care for the bonsai, and moving them around to avoid leaf burns is what I do these days. A few leaves edge dried on one Japanese maple, but only aesthetical harm for my eyes, nothing the tree will notice.
Working the bonsai garden is best practiced during the morning and late evening. But a midday watering is unavoidable. Cooling down the trees for a period, helping them withstand the hot weather.
Welcome to Arthur
Security is a top priority. Besides the cameras and big guard dog, we also found it necessary to upgrade with an apprentice taking care of the shohin bonsai especially.
We have hired, and expect a lot from the corporation. Especially qualified was a candidate fitting the size.
We welcome Arthur the Dachshund as part of the crew. 😉
