Beautiful bonsai trees

(Memolition, 12/06/16) – People have been caring for Bonsai trees for over a thousand years. The ancient horticultural practice originated in China, where it was known as “penzai”, and was later redeveloped under the influence of Japanese Zen Buddhism.

The plants are kept small due to growth-restricting techniques such as pinching buds, pruning and wiring branches and restricting the use of fertilizer. It’s a delicate and time-consuming process, but as you can from this list, those who persevere are rewarded with something amazing.
