BONSAI, A GROWING ART IN MANITOBA

There are many excellent sources for learning about bonsai, but if you live on the Canadian prairies, this web site is designed to help you learn to deal with the local climate conditions so you too can grow bonsai successfully.

Bonsai, a Japanese word pronounced bone-sigh, translates literally as bon (a tray or pot) and sai (a tree or planting). A tree in a pot! But not just any tree, and not just any pot! See bonsai basics.

Bonsai is the name of an art form. Design principles and sound horticultural practices are used to create small trees. These miniature trees, ranging in height from four inches to over four feet, are trained in shallow pots.The object is to create the appearance, expression and even the feeling of a tree in a natural environment, true to scale with a tree in nature.
