The art of bonsai has a rich history dating back centuries to ancient Japan and China, where it was originally practiced by scholars and monks. This art form symbolized harmony, balance, and the connection between humans and nature. Over time, bonsai has become a much-loved technique employed by gardeners and hobbyists, and while bonsai still embodies the principles of patience, respect, and humility, this art is now widely practiced by anyone with a keen interest in this centuries old art form.
