In this book, bonsai expert Paul Lesniewicz looks at those species that can successfully be kept indoors all year round. There are sections on choosing a plant or growing it from seed, planting, general care, pests and diseases, shaping, wiring and pruning, and many other aspects, simply explained to help the gardener create his or her own individual work of art. Previously President of the German Bonsai Club, Paul Lesniewicz founded the first bonsai centre in the German-speaking world. He has for many years been actively involved in the art of Chinese and Japanese bonsai culture. He is one of the very few Europeans to be recognized as an expert in the traditional homes of bonsai-Japan and China.
