Outdoor Bonsai

Bonsai are usually placed inside homes.  Some people feel that having a bonsai inside the home brings a piece of the wild forest home.  Another reason is to protect the small plants from the elements.  Bonsai plants may not be able to withstand the temperature and climactic variations if placed outside.

However, keeping bonsai carefully arranged in a garden outside the home has an aesthetics and charm of its own.

When placing a Bonsai outside the home, it is necessary to check the ability of the particular species to withstand the maximum and minimum temperatures throughout the year.  You must also check if the bonsai can withstand snow or rainfall or wind.

In summer, outdoor Bonsai trees may have to be protected from excess sunlight. 
Bonsai Trees can also planted in terraces or balconies.
