Bonsai is a Japanese form of art and technique wherein the skills lie in sculpting a tree, an art which is appreciated all over the world. You will find an abundance of Zen and Chinese gardens that display a garden of beautiful Bonsai trees.
Bonsai employs nurturing strategies like pruning, root cutback, potting, pruning leaves, along with grafting to create little trees with the purpose of replicating the shape and style of mature, full-sized trees.
