Miniature Bonsai Gardens
Emre Ozberk had a fascination for Bonsai trees. But at some point, he started to focus not on the tree, but on the empty space around it. The beginning of a great new hobby, creating miniature gardens around Bonsai trees.
The Abandoned Power Plant
Azuma Makoto surprises us again with another great Bonsai display, this time inside an abandoned power plant. We talked to the artist about his latest work of art.
Miniature version of Hue
The Vietnamese prove to be masters at creating miniature landscapes. Just two weeks ago we shared an article about a single landscape, this time we share an entire historic city center. Amazing work by a man named Nguyễn; he created a replica of the old city of Hue.
Azalea Bonsai festival
The "Satsuki Azalea festival" is held every year in late may, when the trees are in full bloom. Now I always loved Azaleas, but when they flower they are without doubt stunning.
Bonsai is fine art
Bonsai is an ancient art-form originating in China and Japan, dating back centuries, even millennia. Although Bonsai became incredibly popular in the West, it never reached the status as “fine art” like it does in countries like Japan. We’re very interested to hear what Ryan Neil has to say about this, as he is currently working on creating an event that might change our perception of Bonsai. Finally.
Vietnamese miniature Bonsai landscape

Bonsai is something that fascinates people, and this fascination has led to several jokes and hoaxes on the internet.

Mini and Mame Bonsai
Bonsai are known for their small size. But Mame Bonsai (up to 4" or 10cm) take the quest for miniaturization one step further. Mame and pottery artist Haruyosi (Japan) shares with us several of his miniature works of wonder.
Help! My Bonsai is dying!
I hate to break it to you, but trees don't generally die of old age, so you most likely messed up a bit. And now that you finally found this page, you’re likely too late...
Before and After shots of Bonsai
On our Facebook page we regularly share interesting progressions (before and after shots of Bonsai trees being styled). I find these shots very interesting as it shows how much a skilled artist can do to design a Bonsai tree, often in just hours work, and a few years time. In this post we share 18 great examples.
Generation Bonsai 2015
The Generation Bonsai 2015 event was held at Minoru Bonsai in Germany.
Bonsai trees can grow very old, and it takes years (even decades) to create a full grown tree. Paul Finch did something amazing, he created an Artificial Bonsai that looks so incredibly real that I still can't believe it's fake!
