Bonsai Air Layering Workshop

Wednesday, April 3, 2019, 6 – 9 p.m.

$39.20/$49

New! Air layering on a bonsai forces a tree or branch to form new roots at a certain point by interrupting the stream of nutrients from the existing root system. Air layering is used for reducing the length of a trunk, growing a better nebari (root flare or surface roots), or selecting a branch to be grown as a separate tree. Please bring a tree you would like to air layer to class, all other supplies will be provided. A map will be sent with your confirmation.
