Introduction

I was about nine years old when I read about bonsais – miniature trees, in the Encyclopaedia Britannica. At that time, 70s and the Britannica volumes had been published in the 50s, this particular encyclopedia had a tendency of abbreviating the descriptions and the knowledge about anything about which they knew nothing! So as nobody was there to tell them about me nature plants and miniature shrubs, which were so common in the mysterious East and Oriental Gardens, they had just written about two paragraphs about them.

So I went to the source of more information, father and asked him to elucidate. He immediately explained that bonsai was the Japanese name given to plants, which were fully grown trees, but were miniature. He also explained about little orange trees, which were about 12 to 18 inches in size and were laden with orange fruit. This was very fascinating. We needed bonsais in our garden, I and my younger brother. Like right now.

Introduction

I was about nine years old, when I read about bonsais – miniature trees, in the Encyclopaedia Britannica. At that time, 70s and the Britannica volumes had been published in the 50s, this particular encyclopedia had a tendency of abbreviating the descriptions and the knowledge about anything about which they knew nothing! So as nobody was there to tell them about me nature plants and miniature shrubs, which were so common in the mysterious East and Oriental Gardens, they had just written about two paragraphs about them.

So I went to the source of more information, father and asked him to elucidate. He immediately explained that bonsai was the Japanese name given to plants, which were fully grown trees, but were miniature. He also explained about little orange trees, which were about 12 to 18 inches in size and were laden with orange fruit. This was very fascinating. We needed bonsais in our garden, I and my younger brother. Like right now.

Father explained that it took anywhere between 5 to 10 years for a bonsai to grow. We immediately lost all enthusiasm for this exotic addition to our gardens, we had orchids, bulbs, grafted plants, cuttings, and anything else which our gardeners planted, in fierce competition with the neighboring gardeners. Nevertheless, for a nine year old, five years was an eternity! When we crossed 40, five years was nothing!

Nevertheless, I was surprised to see, that in the West, bonsai gardening began to gain interest, only when the Internet turned up! That was when there were many sites online, telling you all about how to make a miniature shrub or a miniature tree, planted in a pot, container, and half of the information was cut copy paste from another site, which the gardener knew nothing, had made up some content, imagined other content, to add some sort of color and verisimilitude to an otherwise misguiding narrative!

By then, I had already been to many places where nearly every gardener knew about how to create these miniature, very attractive plants, and they had been doing so, down a number of centuries. I had also seen them in exhibitions, even though one statement of mine, as an onlooker made a bonsai winner lose first place.

She had this beautiful bonsai tree, but to make it more attractive, she had added fresh moss, fresh stones, and also repotted it – I turned to my aunt, who was certain, that her chrysanthemums which were really superlative, would be taking first prize, as usual, and just said, "If only Mrs. S had left this
