Overview

All of the above are associated with the Art of Bonsai. If you are seeking a new hobby outside of the normal garden variety, this might be an option for you.

The history of bonsai is left to interpretation. One school of thought says it originated in Japan, some say Korea but the generally accepted history lays claim to China, during the Han Dynasty (206 B.C. - 220 A.D.)

That same school of thought shows the migration to Japan during the Heian period (794 - 1191A.D.) and the eventual western delivery began in the late 1800s to early 1900s in Europe.

Regardless of what school of thought you might prefer, the Art of Bonsai represents a significant following for those who are seeking a peaceful outlook for ones creativity.

Meet the Author

Paul Kennedy has been interested in Bonsai for several years.

He started doing it after seeing a display and talking to the organizer who invited him to visit their nursery.

Paul thought it would be much easier than it turned out to be. But, he says that he has got a lot of benefits from his new hobby.

“I was looking for something which would encourage me to relax and take my mind away from the pressures of the business I was in.”

“Growing Bonsai gives me great satisfaction and a complete break from the work I do.”

There’s always something new and unlimited possibilities to explore.”

Paul write his book to show people that almost anyone can do Bonsai whatever their background or situation.

“Bonsai has an image which puts off some people – they see it as requiring a lot of study.”

“It does require a commitment but most people can arrange their Bonsai activities to fit around their other commitments and past times.”

“I must emphasize that I can’t guarantee 100% success with all your future Bonsai ventures. But, I will help you to improve your results and save time, effort and money.”

“Bonsai gives me great satisfaction. It is mentally challenging but is within the capabilities of almost anyone, whatever their situation, age or other circumstances.”

“Bonsai can give us gentle physical exercise, mental challenges and help us to relax – all at the same time! All of that is good for our health and self-image.”

“When you have read my book, you can continue to use it as a quick reference for your further adventures in the wonderful world of Bonsai gardening.”
