The word “Bon-sai” (often misspelled as bonzai or banzai) is a Japanese term which, literally translated, means “planted in a container”. This art form is derived from an ancient Chinese horticultural practice, part of which was then redeveloped under the influence of Japanese Zen Buddhism. It has been around for well over a thousand years. The ultimate goal of growing a Bonsai is to create a miniaturized but realistic representation of nature in the form of a tree. Bonsai are not genetically dwarfed plants, in fact, any tree species can be used to grow one. – Bonsai Empire
Come to Sttudio 292 and learn the art of Bonsai from Mr.Sanjeev Suri, who comes from a family of plant lovers. He developed interest in gardening watching his grandfather and father toiling endlessly over the right pot for a plant and the correct soil combination. Soon this hobby became a passion. Sanjeev is a self taught and hands on gardener or more of a ‘seasonal gardener’ as he like to call himself. He specializes in bonsai and is always more than happy to share his knowledge with all plant lovers.
