Miniature Bonsai: The Complete Guide to Super-Mini Bonsai

Author(s): Terutoshi Iwai


This step-by-step bonsai book shows you how to craft super mini bonsai—the smallest form of bonsai!

Super-Mini bonsai is the art of representing nature in a plant that can fit in the palm of your hand, or on the tip if your finger. As rewarding as full-scale bonsai cultivation, mini bonsai is affordable, easy to learn and kind to your busy schedule. It's a complete gardening experience—a plant raised from seed or cutting, carefully potted, grown and maintained over time—a world of green in a pot no bigger than a demitasse or a thimble.

From mixing the right growing medium to choosing the perfect pot to displaying your mini bonsai, this Japanese gardening book gives you basic techniques and valuable tips to help you grow miniature:

  • flowering trees

  • pines

  • maples

  • oaks

  • junipers

  • and other varieties of tiny trees and potted plants that are readily available and last for years

With Miniature Bonsai you'll learn how to:

  • Choose plants that can thrive as mini bonsai

  • Work with seeds and cuttings

  • Cultivate and care for mini bonsai

  • Match the right plant to the right pot

  • Train your mini bonsai

  • And more…

A happy pastime, a perfect gift, a beautiful addition to spaces small and large—Miniature Bonsai will show you how to make it happen.
