The art of bonsai, as traditionally practised, calls for training shrubs and trees to mimic – in miniature – the gnarled ancients of forest and crag. Those traditional specimens may need more than fifty years to mature, but by using woody herbs, you can get comparable effects in less than one year. Rosemary, scented geraniums, the thymes, and many other easily grown herbs are ideal for bonsai. In this book, horticulturist Richard W Bender shares his innovative technique, providing you with advice on choosing the appropriate herbs for the kinds of bonsai you wish to create. Practical instructions guide you through every step of the process.
