Many of us may think that "bonsai" describes a type of tree, when it is actually the art of creating these miniature wonders. Even if you aren't a gardener, it is possible to apply these techniques to everyday container gardening, instantly turning houseplants and herbs into beautiful and unusual bonsai sculptures. Providing an overview of this ancient art as well as the essential techniques, this illustrated guide explains how to cultivate bonsai variants of fragrant flowers (hibiscus and jasmine), kitchen herbs (rosemary and thyme), luscious fruits (cherries and oranges), and medicinals (tea tree and camphor laurel).
