Controlling Watering of Bonsai with Cover During Summer Months
I live in central Connecticut, zone 6. I have 3 bonsai (1 tropical, 1 subtropical, and 1 outdoor). Currently, as of May 11, I am bringing the sub/tropicsls in at night.
I was told that I need to put them in a covered place (but sunny) during the summer months so I can control the amount of water they receive.
I realize this is an ideal situation, but I don't have any overhead cover. Is that what everyone does, or is it just this one person's opinion? If I need to cover them, does anyone have any ideas of how to do it other than building something (I don't have any tools to build anything fancy...) Thank you.
