Is there anything more enchanting than a Bonsai tree? To be able to capture the calm, strong majesty of a tree and enjoy it in your home in miniature form. It is a spectacular plant. For a gift, for yourself, or for no reason at all. Everyone loves a Bonsai tree.
How are Bonsai trees made?
Bonsai trees have been around for over a thousand years, with roots in Japan’s Zen Buddhist culture. Contrary to popular belief, Bonsai trees are not genetically engineered ‘dwarf’ trees. Any tree can be a bonsai tree, given the right care and environment. The goal is to create a miniature tree, using techniques such as root pinching, pruning, wiring branches and redirecting growth.
It’s not as simple as it sounds though, which is why many people choose to buy a ready-grown Bonsai tree from an online florist and delivery service like LolaFlora.
There are now hundreds of different variations of Bonsai trees available worldwide. It has to be said that the quality varies, as some trees are better suited to being Bonsai trees than others. Those with small leaves and true branches, for example. That’s why we stick to the traditional Bonsai tree to present to you.
What does it mean to give a Bonsai tree as a gift?
Bonsai trees generally symbolise harmony, balance and peace. They inspire a feeling of completeness, of being at one with nature. We all know how important nature is to our mental health. It’s proven that plants indoors can have a positive effect on our state of mind and wellbeing. Not only are Bonsai trees striking in appearance, they could be a helpful mood booster too.
