The success of your bonsai depends on a variety of factors, most notably watering and light. Below are some species specific guidelines to follow that will help ensure that your bonsai will stay healthy and happy.
The Flowering almond is best pruned prior to spring right before they begin to push flowers and buds. The clip and grow method works very well with this species. However, branches can also be wired because of the flexibility of the branches.
Fertilize your tree monthly with bonsai fertilizer during the spring, summer and fall. Fertilizer is not necessary during the winter.
The flowering almond tree can tolerate cold temperatures up to -30 degrees Fahrenheit. The tree can also tolerate warmer weather as well.
The Flowering almond is drought tolerant. However, we recommend watering your tree daily to maintain moist soil levels.
Repot your Flowering almond in late winter before the flowers begin to emerge. We recommend a well draining mix. Trees that are repotted prior to the blooming season may skip a season.
