    Hi everyone, I think I'm going to give outdoor bonsai growing a go, I'm just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for bonsai beginners books?

    @Scottortiz1 after a good look around I plumped for this book (and a couple more) having read it I can say it's very informative, none demeaning, loads of diagrams and great information on a lot of common trees used for bonsai, I found it really good.

      I am happy to recommend this book again if you can find it on sale:

      What's more, Peter has a youtube channel in which he mentions the book:




      There is a wisdom imparted by his books, and now through his youtube channel, that is hard to find anywhere else.

      Thanks @misterQ that looks really good, there are copies around but some are really expensive, I'll keep an eye out and see if spot one with a decent price. I'll take a look at the YouTube channel.
