Fabulous Bonsai Herbs

Looking for a fun, new hobby? How about bonsai herbs?

The art of growing miniature tree-like plants in small pots is known as bonsai, an ancient art originated from China centuries ago.

Today, this art has gained popularity worldwide. Having a highly inquisitive and creative mind, I set out the task of attempting to grow my own bonsai.

Now mind you, bonsai is a form of art that requires great dedication and patience. I, on the other hand, like things to go a little bit faster, so I decided to try my hands on the equivalent herbs since they grow much faster than trees.

  1. Herbs are hardy and easy to grow indoors or outdoors.
    • They’re very forgiving when it comes to growing conditions.
  2. They grow fast, so if you make a mistake in your sculpting endeavor worry not, because you’ll have new branches and leaves within weeks to start anew.
  3. When you prune your herb bonsai, you can use the leaves for cooking.
  4. Finally, they’re fun to work with because they smell great !

My number one rule is make sure it’s a perennial herb.

You want to choose a plant that would be able to outlive you, and can be passed down to your next generation.

Below is my personal list of excellent choices for herb bonsai:

  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Lemon Verbana
  • Sweet Bay Laurel
  • Lavender
  • Sage
  • French Tarragon
