|Trees have been highly valued by humans since the beginning of time. In fact, the word "paradise" is derived from the Persian word "pardes," which translates to "a park planted with trees." Research has shown that patients heal more quickly when they have a view of trees.
The best bonsai are grown from seed because there is no trace left on the plant of the cultivation methods used to train it into its final shape. Often, trees and shrubs need to undergo some sort of cooling period or stratification process in order to sprout, but the seeds contained in the Bonsai Village do not. They are quick to sprout with only water and sunlight!
