Africa’s Little Trees, De Wildt, North-West Province.

The word bonsai is derived from two Chinese words – “bon”, a bowl or container, and “sai”, a tree or plant.  A bonsai is thus a dwarf version of a tree in nature.  The Japanese have many rules and styles.  The Chinese however place emphasis on freedom regarding form.  Thousands of bonsai and, in particular, acacia varieties such as apiesdoring, swartapiesdoring and knoppiesdoring as well as white stinkwood and wild olive are grown every year at Africa’s Little Trees.  For those who would like to plant their own bonsai in a container, they are available in black plastic bags from 2-40 kg.  They are also available in ceramic containers or on slate, singly or in groups, with perfect landscaping.  Vissershoek, De Wildt, which is on the R566 west of Pretoria.
