Bonsai are living works of art, carefully sculpted and trained from shoots. Nurtured into miniaturised versions of fully grown trees, bonsai trees come in a range of varieties, shapes and sizes; everyone is an individual.
The art of growing Bonsai actually originated in China not Japan, even though nowadays bonsai are associated with Japan. Bonsai were brought to Japan by Chinese Buddhist monks. Later the Japanese started to grow Bonsai for decorative purposes in their homes and gardens and turned it into a highly developed stylised art form.
The bonsai trees we supply have been grown for display outside in the garden and provide for a highly original, centrepiece. What is more, because the art of bonsai stipulates that the essence of the art-form is in the nurture and manipulation of the plant; bonsai trees are a highly satisfying tree to grow in your garden.
Some gardeners use bonsai trees as a tool for focus in meditation whereas others prize them for their intricacies and longevity, entwining their own personalities into the maintenance of the tree. It follows to mention that the enjoyment surrounding bonsai growing comes in the nurture and maintenance of the tree itself, rather than simply planting. As a result, bonsai trees need a large amount of care and attention for you to get the best out of what potentially is the most delightful and intriguing addition to your garden.
