Tip: Do not keep your bonsai tree on top of a television or heater.
Tropical imported trees should be kept out in the garden during warm summer months and given cool, light conditions in the house, such as a window sill, at other times.
Trees which are hardy in the UK should be kept outside all the time, just given shelter from cold winter winds, or put in a cold unheated greenhouse, for the winter.
