I first came to know about Sanfong Bonsai Nursery, the Bonsai N Stone Academy and the Bonsai Clubs International (BCI) at Putrajaya Floria 2010 where they put up a good show with an impressive display of bonsai trees and a series of lectures about growing bonsai. Due to time constraints, I didn't get to attend their talks and bonsai training sessions during the floral festival but I was captivated by the very elegant, lovely and well trimmed bonsai trees, each properly labelled with owner name and plant ID. However, I had the chance to marvel at the splendid masterpieces created and got a glimpse into this unique lifetime hobby. You can read about if from my blog post here.
That unforgetable experience at Floria 2010 had prompted me to visit the Sanfong Bonsai and Art Garden nursery in Semenyih which meant more than an hour's drive all the way there with traffic jams and all. But the trip was well worth it. Actually we were not familiar with the town and hence missed the nursery during the first attempt. Luckily the owner was very helpful and gave us clear road instructions. It may be advisable to call them first before making the trip in case they are closed during certain holidays.
They have a lot of choices in terms of plant varieties, types, size, structure and shapes. Many people think that bonsai is a Chinese-dominated hobby or a luxury of the rich and wealthy. Here, you can find potted miniature bonsai from as low as RM 18 to giant trees costing tens of thousands.
Actually bonsai growing is a healthy pastime for people from all races and backgrounds.
