BonsaiBonsai trees are a Japanese phenomenon, right? Actually, they were first cultivated in China where these miniature trees are referred to as penjing and have been popular for thousands of years.

They are exceptionally calming in the home and indeed,one of their functions is that of contemplation – and they are often referred to as a ‘three dimension poem ‘ or a ‘living sculpture’. The careful pruning and cultivation of these trees to create the most pleasing visual shapes serve to distinguish them from other potted plants. They are often incorporated into miniature landscapes and form a bond with the natural world that you can enjoy in your home every day.

Particularly attractive are the flowering versions. You can see from the photograph on the left how dramatic they can look, especially if you take a little time and trouble to light them effectively. Some even bear fruit. They are a beautiful way to bring nature into your home, even the smallest apartment.

  1. Hi,I have Chinese Elm which I bought back in April’12 from an online nursery and has been growing well indoors, until about November when slowly by slowly all the leaves dropped off leaving a completely bare tree. I have recently re-potted it as I felt the soil for which it was originally planted in was too compacted and had white insects in the soil. I completely washed away all soil and had a look at the root system cutting back if necessary and re-potted in a Akadama soil mix. I have also preformed a cambium test on a couple of the branches and they are both showing a dark green underneath the bark. Is there anything else I can do for it at present or will I have to wait till nearer spring to see ?
