Synopsis:

We have had some amazing Autumn colour here at Greenwood, I just wanted to take this opportunity to share some of these images with you.

Most of you know that as well as running a bonsai business, I maintain my own personal collection of Bonsai. This is because bonsai to me is not just a business, but having spent the last 30 within bonsai, and longer before that growing up with them during my childhood, they are a way of life.

Synopsis:

Welcome to the Art of Bonsai

Bonsai means literally a plant or planting in a shallow pot or container. The art of bonsai is to maintain the natural form of trees. The tree is reduced in size by judicious pruning, pinching and directing the growth into the desired form to achieve the illusion of a fully grown, aged and well groomed tree.

Watch your tree change with the season - from first Spring green to bright Autumn colours with the flowering and fruiting trees providing colourful displays in season.

As the owner of a bonsai you have the responsibility of its care and maintenance and must be prepared to spend some time looking after it. Many fine examples of bonsai are alive today with a recorded history of centuries and your tree too could live for hundreds of years with the basic horticultural care as outlined here.
