Please recommend bonsai plants for beginner
My DH is really interested in bonsai and after toying around with plants found at those big box stores, he's ready for something serious. Can you recommend a variety that is good for beginners? He really likes figs but is dying to have a Japanese Maple or a Schefflera(SP?). Are those good options? TIA! Also, can you recommend a reputable vendor? Our local nurseries carry very little in the way of bonsai.
