The history of bonsai
When thinking of bonsai, Japan comes to mind. But did you know that it actually originated from China as early as 120AD? From China, the practice spread to Japan, Korea, Vietnam and Thailand. It was during this early period that Japan assimilated some Chinese cultural characteristics into their own, and “Penzai” changed to “Bonzai” when referring to small container trees. The Japanese used container plants to decorate their homes, and to place in their extensive gardens.
Small tree rearing was also practiced in ancient Egypt, Ramesses donated gardens of olives, dates palms and other trees in planted containers. Ancient India also planted plants in tubs or containers for medicine and food.
