How To Grow a Bonsai Tree

The Chinese created Bonsai trees two thousand years ago when they shrunk a full sized tree intetntionally by methodically trimming its branches and roots. The Bonsai tree is know for being very powerful meditation tool and it is whorshipped in China because it can bring peace and calming in all the house.

The Bonzai was intentionally “dwarfed” which is a difficult operation and it can be very difficult to grow! Bonsai tress can be bought fromany local nurseries or can be grown from seed. Being exotic you won’t be able to find them in the local nursery. You must head to the tropical plants and exotics maybe you can locate one.

Many gardeners recommend applying wire to the branches to  shape any unsightly or crooked branches. Wrap them snugly  with some wire then remove the wires when the tree has grown used to it’s new shape.
