'Cedar' bonsai

simsedwardAugust 24, 2010

Anyone ever use a cedar tree (misnomer I know, really like an arbor vitae, but everyone up here calls them eastern white cedars) as bonsai material? I have located a nice one on our property up north and was thinking of potting it up next spring.

Recommended to leave outdoors all winter.

Yes, outdoors indeed!
Some protection for the root-zone might be advised.

I love conifer bonsai covered in a light frock of snow.
Makes for a great winter picture!
