Monthly Tasks

There are a number of tasks you should to when caring for your bonsai – from repotting, to fertilizing to spraying for pests. The tasks vary depending upon the season. We have put together a checklist, customized for the San Francisco Bay Area to help you.

This checklist is adapted from earlier work by Mitsuo Umehara, an award winning bonsai artist and teacher – and curator of the original Japanese Garden in San Mateo.
