Bonsai Techniques
Talk about pruining, shape, wiring and advanced techniques like deadwood, Jin and Shari here.

Including this video from Herons Bonsai talking about using Pea Shingle or Pea Gravel as a base for ground covering in a nursery. Peter describes how the roots of the plants and trees grow down through the pots and into the ground. The gravel seems to encourage root growth and benefits the plant and trees. One look around the nursery and you see a variety of trees and plants. At one point in this video, Peter pulls up a pot that has massive roots that are super fibrous grown in the pea gravel. If you the space and access to Pea Shingle or Pea Gravel, it looks like it makes a great way for plants and trees to establish a strong root system.

Nice video, I wonder if that would work inside a small greenhouse?

Thanks, Peter did all the work!

I don't see why this would not work in a small greenhouse. I believe that the benefit is derived from the drainage provided by the pea gravel. I think pea gravel would work nicely as the ground material in a greenhouse.
