Are questions on Bonsai Trees suitable for the gardening and landscaping exchange? Would they be considered off-topic?

Are Bonsai Trees within the scope of gardening and landscaping?

  • I think they're part of gardening and landscaping, even if said landscaping is on a miniature scale. Just tag the question with bonsai-trees or something appropriate, and anyone who really avoids all things bonsai should ignore the tag.

I do not believe they would be off-topic, at least not anymore off topic than discussion of house plants, window boxes or other non-gardening horticulture questions. I think that pretty much any question having to do with plants is going to be welcome here.

    No question: on-topic in every way. (Though if the question were something like: "How do I take a picture of a Bonsai?" or something it might be a little bit off-topic. ;-) Jun 10, 2011 at 17:20
  • "How do I take a picture..." of anything goes to Photography.SE. :)
