Bonsai Trees

Bonsai Trees

When I look at Bonsai trees, I see serenity, simplicity, beauty, history and the flowing rhythm of life. Is that what you get too?

Growing something, anything, is a soothing, healing experience and the growing of bonsai trees is a serious form of art and meditation and very, very therapeutic. Simple and yet complex, growing bonsai trees allows you to exercise your creativity absolutely and at the same time requires you to dedicate time, effort and a great deal of patience.

There’s a lot of information available on how to go about growing bonsai trees and most of it is very good. The book that I found absolutely indispensable is “Bonsai Gardening Secrets” by Erik A. Olsen. It’s written in a simple, easy to understand style and goes into detail about things that most others tend to gloss over. For anyone who wants to seriously pursue growing bonsai trees, this book is an absolute treasure.
