first bonsai pruning, where to start?
i just bought a small dwarf spruce from lowes and want to make this into a bonsai, but nothing i have read shows how to do this. is there a starting point, such as do I prune the roots first and then the top. when pruning the top, do I prune down to make the tree shorter and then start with branch pruning for wiring?
any help would be good. this is the first bonsai i'm trying and would like to get into a forest planting, so i'm shooting for thin straight trees, just on a mini scale. any help would be great.
