Home > BONSAI CARE SHEETS

Below is a list of all the Bonsai Care Sheets we offer. These care sheets are in alphabetical order so find the one you want and simply click on the name of the tree and an Adobe PDF file will open in a separate window. It is best printed on both sides (duplex printing) as it is meant to fold like a tri-fold brochure. If you do not have Adobe PDF Reader, please click on this ADOBE LINK and install it on your computer. Be sure to choose the right program for your computer system.

Included at the bottom of the list is a graphic picture of the USDA Zone Map to help you understand if your tree will survive in your climate.

We try to update this list as often as possible, so if you do not see the Care Sheet that you need, come back later and see if it has been added.
