"Harry Harrington's books have an excellent reputation and quite rightly so. He has a very readable style giving straight forward instruction backed with simple explanation. More importantly his words are illustrated by photographs of his own artistic work. Looking at his own bonsai work in a progression series of photographs, you know that this is one author who genuinely knows what he is writing about!""I bought this book as I was interested in bonsai trees, and how to grow them and properly care for them.
I was not disappointed. It's easy to read and consists of lovely images. The book starts with the history of bonsai trees, then it moves on how to grow your own bonsai from seed or you can buy one ready made. Then it moves on how to care for them and what tools will be required. The good thing about this author is that he also gives you alternative ideas that doesn't cost the earth.""A really good book for a first timer to Bonsai. The book was practical no nonsense approach to encourage people to have a go. Not be scared with making a mistake or tree and to be aware that many bonsai plants sold in your local garden centre will most likely die as they havent been grown by Bonsai specialists. Many of the myths surrounding the growing mediums are explained and dismissed with practical economicadvise to purchase a particular type of cat litter which the author has used for several years and found to be just as good if not better than some more expensive arty farty products!"
