Bonsai (pronounced bone-sigh) is an art form similar to painting, music, and sculpture which provides each of us with an opportunity to demonstrate our creative expression and horticultural techniques. Bonsai, translated literally from Japanese, means “tree in a tray”. It can be considered 50% art form and 50% horticulture.
