Elegantly understated, this bonsai forest pairs clean lines and industrial materials with the ancient art of miniature gardening. The contemporary design maintains a traditional awareness to complement a variety of both indoor and outdoor spaces.
This kit includes everything needed to grow and sculpt a tree into a work of living art: tree seeds, organic growing medium, bonsai scissors — authentic tools which have been made by the same company since 1663! — and complete growing directions.
Since the tree grows from seeds, you get complete control over its styling, and you get to enjoy each stage of its growth. (For reference, the tree pictured at left is four years old.)
Japanese Elm is a classic bonsai tree with great character. Long, delicate branches with small serrated leaves that turn orange and yellow in the autumn give this tree year-round interest. It is considered to be one of the best bonsais for winter when its arrangement of attractive branches are not hidden by leaves.
