Bonsai artists use hundreds of varieties of plant materials to create bonsai. The trees are like snowflakes as no two turn out exactly the same. We can divide types of bonsai into four (4) general classes: Evergreen, Deciduous, Tropical and Specimens. Here are some examples of our work. ENJOY!
Bonsai can be developed from seeds or cuttings, from young trees or from naturally occurring stunted trees transplanted into containers, Most Bonsai range in height from 2 inches to about 3 feet. Bonsai are kept small and trained by pruning branches and roots, by periodic re-potting, by pinching off new growth. Bonsai are styled by wiring the branches and trunk so that they grow into a desired shape. A properly cared for bonsai tree should outlive a full sized tree of the same species. Bonsai are not a genetically dwarfed plant,they are normal plants grown in a special way. Your expertly packaged web purchased tree or the one that you choose from our nursery will have all this work done, and you can have the relaxation and meditative benefits of this endeavor by maintaining your tree.
Bonsai is the stylistic re-creation of natural tree formations in miniature which are grown in containers, usually outdoors.The uninitiated might think that bonsai 'It is the ritualized torture of little trees',but they are really more like a pampered pet. People new to bonsai are always fascinated with age. They ask: "How old is that tree?" Our answer is almost always "I don't know". Number one in importance is always the beauty of the creation, and the skill of the artist. Also important is the apparent age of the bonsai, not how old it actually is. After that, it's a matter of taper, ramification, harmony between tree and pot, and finally the health and vitality of the bonsai tree itself. It is quite possible to create a high quality bonsai tree in an afternoon given the right material and skill.
