In the event of a hard freeze in your area, frost-tender bonsai such as bougainvillea, elephant's food, the various Ficus, lantana, natal plum, and so forth need extra protection. If you can, before sunset move the trees close to the house and under a porch or the edge of the roof so that vertical air drafts will not directly reach them. Elevate the pots on concrete blocks or a table or bench and put a section of newspaper directly under each pot to provide a layer of insulation. If winds or breezes are likely, drape a newspaper page over each pot, anchoring it under the corners of the pot. Do not use plastic sheeting.

An unheated but protected room, garage, or storage closet can also be used. Again, place an insulative layer of newspaper below the pots.

If you notice or suspect frost damage to your bonsai, it is best to wait until the appearance of new growth before trimming any branches. Plants will always surprise you with their hardiness.

Be sure to keep an eye on the water needs of each tree. Watering can generally be done less frequently now. But do pay attention to the dew point: a few days in the winter here can have very, very low dewpoints. At those times moisture is easily lost from even leafless trees.

I forgot..


DO NOT fertilize in the winter. Wait until the appearance of swelling leaf buds before feeding any tree.

Take time now to clean and oil your tools, clean your empty pots, review your books and magazines.

Hello Marcus,
Obviously you do not have to worry about winter care of bonsai if you live in the tropics. This discussion is for care of temperate trees where winters are harsh.
The concept of wintering over a bonsai is not too much different from wintering over what is already planted in your yard. It is not necessary to be unduly frightened about the onset of winter and bonsai care. Most temperate climate trees grown as bonsai are capable of handling the severe weather as long as a few simple conditions are met.
Winter winds combined with temperatures below the mid twenties Fahrenheit (or below -5 Celsius) will freeze dry almost any bonsai. This is the biggest enemy.
All other temperate plants can be kept in a sheltered area out of direct sun and wind. The pots should be mulched or buried to the top of the rim in the earth. Burlap barriers work well as a wind break. You can also make a wall using bales of straw.
If there is not much snow or the weather warms it is possible you will have to water your trees from time to time. Rule of Thumb: If the soil ball is frozen, you do not need to water. If the soil ball thaws and starts to dry you must water.

If you to want to get more information about the respective or any other topic you can visit bonsaioutlet.com site. I have referred the sites to too many friends and they are highly satisfied with the service level of that company.
Thanks...!
