Bonsai is the art of growing trees and plants, which are kept small. This is done by growing the tree in a small pot or tray and pruning (cutting) the branches and roots. Bonsai trees are trained to grow into a shape that is pleasing to look at. The best bonsai trees appear to be old have a shape that seems natural. Bonsai is a very old natural art form from Japan.

A Bonsai plant is not naturally small. It is kept small by shaping and root pruning. It is possible for a well-trained bonsai to live to be older than a large tree of the same species. However, a bonsai needs much care, and a poorly-tended bonsai will not be healthy and might die.

In the art of bonsai a sense of beauty, patience, and good care are all needed. The plant, the shape of the plant, as well as the arrangements of soil choice of a container ar important. You 11find the hobby of bonsai to be both relaxing and enjoyable. Below are some keys to success with this art form.
