Whilst I was out walking the dog in the local woods the other day a few things caught my eye that I thought may benefit our club members.

Nebari. Also known as “buttressing,” nebari is the visible spread of roots above the growing medium at the base of a bonsai. Nebari helps a bonsai seem grounded and well-anchored and helps a tree look old, mature, and more akin to a full-sized tree.
