The art of growing tiny trees in pots, known as “bonsai,” is a time-honored Japanese tradition. The miniature trees are nice when outdoor garden space is limited or still under a blanket of snow. Purchase one of these lovely specimens from Robert Cho’s Seattle nursery (Cho is known as “the bonsai whisperer”) through the Isabella catalog. Plant comes with care instructions, food and a ceramic drip tray. $115 at www.isabellacatalog.com.
