Japanese maple kashima as bonsai
Hello, not a bonsai enthusiast or expert but am considering giving it a go. I have this japanese maple in my front yard, a dwarf called kashima. I've had it for many years, been in the ground for three years now. It will never really flourish there because every spring deer browse it. Nonetheless, it has survived, and is a tough plant with a nice thick green trunk. Ill attach a pic. Is it a good candidate? Any tips?
