How to do a Bonsai style pruning on a juniper?

kuriooo(5)April 8, 2008

Hi,

I posted previously about what to do with my old juniper shrub and a bonsai cut was suggested.

How exactly does one go about doing that? I'm assuming there are some basic rules to follow when trying to shape one of these big shrubs? What main principles should I follow?

I've done some general pruning but my 'shaping' plants doesn't always come out the best...

Thanks in advance!

Your best bet would be to begin some research of the many of good web sites you'll easily find on the Internet. It's really a bit too complicated to answer on a forum like this.

You'll be able to study lots of photographs, too, with a bit of web searching.
