Bonsai trees are cultivated and trained by Japanese floral experts sometimes for ten years or more to create the illusion of a large tree on a miniature scale. Each one is selected for its beauty and ease of care.
The art of topiary originated in Persia, Rome and Greece. Some plants take up to five years of painstaking pruning and growing to achieve their magnificent form, making them a particularly precious gift. Lush variety and classic shapes give them an enduring style reminiscent of the great gardens of Europe.
