🌳🇯🇵 Brief information on indoor and outdoor sited trees. Though the book is small and great for carrying around, the images are small and are mainly photos of sad little mass market bonsai. Like Peter Chan's other titles which have the exact same images, this book appears to be a handbook to accompany puny, underdeveloped cheap pre-bonsai. This title does include more species than his other titles.
