2022 Tree Symposium: Bonsai in Your Garden

Tuesday 11-15-22 07:00 pm (Eastern)


Time to Try It with John Michalski


Due to their tiny proportions, bonsai are ideal for the small garden, yet many people are daunted by the perceived difficulty and challenges of designing and keeping these container-grown trees alive and healthy. John Michalski will present the artistic and horticultural principles behind this ancient art form, and hopefully convince you that, if you know how to tend a garden or prune a hedge, you can successfully grow, style and maintain bonsai in your own yard.

John is a public school science teacher who enjoys gardening and has been working with bonsai since 1988. He is currently President of the Great Swamp Bonsai Society, which is based in Morris County, New Jersey.

Registration for this program will close at 4:00 PM on the day of the program.

This program is eligible for 1.0 Rutgers Master Gardener CEU.

This program will be recorded and available only to those who register for it.
