The Art of Bonsai started many centuries ago in China and Japan like the art of growing miniature trees. 
But unusual bonsai may be miniaturized from almost any plants and garden herbs with woody and semiwoody stems - you just need to have know-how; aesthetic sense and originality; determination and patience to shape and refine its shape again and again, to prune, wire and train them until will give the viewer the impression of bonsai trees many years old.
Theoretically, Bonsai uses cultivation techniques like pruning, root reduction, potting, defoliation, and grafting to produce small trees that mimic the shape and style of mature, full-sized trees.
