My First Bonsai Tree
This is a picture of my first store bought Bonsai Tree. If i knew what is in this course i wouldn't have wasted the first few years figuring all this out and would have had a much nicer tree quicker. Here's a few mistakes made.
Potted To Early
Wrong Style / Colour Pot
No Concept Of Bonsai Design
That Same Tree After Fixing Mistakes

Do You Want To Start Succeeding In Bonsai?
Bonsai is a hobby that can take a lot of time to develop nice trees, Usually the first few years are wasted with trying to learn the proper techniques through trial and error and scouring the internet for information. If you can learn the proper techniques fast and begin practising those techniques you can save years and begin developing nice trees instantly. You can also save a lot of money by not having to replace dead trees or wasted product like bonsai wire. If we can save you a roll of bonsai wire and a nursery stock tree you have already profited!
I found the course very informative. Josh explains things very simply and clearly. I did this as a refresher course and to compare this course and teaching style to other online bonsai courses I've completed. I really appreciated the way Josh took everything back to simple terms. I believe this and further courses created by Josh and Bonsai Dojo will be very successful.
Fantastic,Josh explains everything so well and the part I liked the most was he gives reasons for everything he does so you learn a lot.
Well worth enrolling.
Such a well structured, easy to follow course. Josh is great at explaining all aspects of the lesson in a engaging way.
I enjoyed the sessions they were so full of helpful information.
Fantastic course, everything was explained really well but still kept simple enough for me to understand. I also love that I can keep going back for a refresher on different topics whenever I need too. Well worth the money and explained much better than reading a book.
