    That’s a hard call, ummm. Probably the best thing is check? out the local nursery cause invariably they’ll only carry stuff good for the area.

    As far as the bonsai side goes mostly your small leaf variety are easiest to look after.

    What you can’t go wrong with are the ficus species, you couldn’t kill them if you tried. The weeping fig and the ficus rubiginosa (Port Jackson) are excellent. I’ll be doing a video on the ficus soon so maybe subscibe so you get the updates.
