Anyone know how to do Bonsai

I have a small pepper garden.
All my plants are in pots and I noticed about a week ago that some birds have left me a present in the form of oak seedlings.

the biggest is about 8 inches and all are very healthy.

I figured I would try my hand at bonsai with them.

I have not done an extensive search but what I have found is either in German or not very in depth.

Any info or links would be appreciated

I took a class years ago through the local technical school , never kept up with it but I'm glad you posted this jan -march is the time to do it so I may give it a go this year again

look for a bonsai nursery in your area and see if they offer classes or can recommend a book

might also check your local library for books

Your local Cooperative Extension Service should be able to provide you with some info. I took a class through them years ago. Your Extension Service may not offer such classes.

Also check for books at your local library. You can also find helpful info online. Try For bonsai oak links You may also want to purchase a book or two.
