Tessa sent through some photographs the other week of the crazy lengths people go to in order to create the perfect bonsai (see https://www.sprig.co.za/2010/11/is-chinese-bonsai-an-art-or-tree-torture-4/). My neighbour grows loads of bonsais and has a completely different approach. He basically just plants trees in small pots and lets them grow. I am trying to do the same with a pomegranate tree a friend gave me, which I am growing in a container. Technically not a bonsai but a happy small tree!
