I have shared before that, while I still feel like a beginner, I have been a bonsai enthusiast for a long time. It surprises me, then, when a new idea pops out at me. This may just mean I don’t pay attention well, or that I am a slow learner, but I digress. 

A recent post on Crataegus.com, one of the fantastic blogs I follow, included this little gem:

“One of my core beliefs with a tree that has faults like this is to grow it into the next size larger bonsai. Literally, grow it out of its problems.”

I have considered this approach with my own trees, but to hear it from Michael Hagedorn officially puts this strategy in my tool box. 

Thanks for the great post, Michael.
