Winter is around the corner and an interesting hobby to start with while spending more time under shelter is the art of bonsai. Look for young trees, start them from seed or buy a bonsai with shape and character already present and be aware that some trees are easier to train and manipulate. A good place to start is with one of our indigenous wild olives, an evergreen Ceder or the flowering Bougainvillea! Bonsai is such a clever way to bring a garden into a small space like a flat too!
