Bonsai is an art-form that has been around for hundreds, even thousands of years. Although it's a highly rewarding hobby, too often it is seen as difficult and steeped in tradition. We teach you the basics of Bonsai in this course using video-tutorials, text guides and a quiz. Everything we do is practically oriented; we assist you in growing and styling your very own Bonsai tree. Eager to grow a Bonsai tree yourself? Stop hesitating and use this course to get a taste of this fascinating hobby! Really, you can do this without any prior knowledge or even green thumbs!
