Bonsai

@

@

 Bonsai is a horticultural art unique to Japan and became an internationally known word.

Grasses and trees are transplanted into small earthenware containers and are grown in natural shape.

Developing into desired shape or landscape through the help of a tree or some plants(moss etc.) is important.

The average height of a tree is approximately  54 cm.

 Common types of the tree are pine, maple, plum ,azalea and so on.

Electing the appropriate type of soil and use of fertilizer are also important.

Wiring the branches or trunk to control the shape and pruning are given.

Bonsai takes many years to grow into the desired shape.

Points of Appreciation

1) Whether the roots have grown properly, spreading in all directions.

2) Whether the trunk expresses the strength of growing upward, reflecting its natural beauty.

3) How healthy and thick the branches are and the balance of their curves and contours.

Please come to the Bonsai exhibition.
