Bonsai and Orchid Exhibit at Monte Santo

While there is a common association between the Japanese culture and Bonsais, the Chinese were in fact the first to cultivate these small shrubs in ceramic vases. Archaeologists have found remains that indicate the existence of gardening tools and potted plants from as far back as 200 D.C..

The hobby of caring for Bonsais has grown exponentially in recent years, especially in Europe, currently these small shrubs can be found throughout the world. The interest in Bonsais has accompanied the general public´s growing curiosity for the martial arts and Asian culture. This hobby requires patience along with some artistic ability and is ideal for individuals who wish to relax and escape from their everyday stress.

On the 7th and 8th of December at 3:00 p.m. Monte Santo will host a bonsai workshop in collaboration with the Win Garden & Home. This workshop will teach participants the basic steps of caring for such sensitive trees. Each session has a length of 1 hour and 30 minutes, a minimum participation of 10 people and is free of charge. Feel free to bring your own Bonsai or choose one made available by the Win Garden. The workshop will be held within the five star resort’s Club House in Carvoeiro; reservations may de booked by telephone +351 282 321 000 or e-mail to info.montesanto@imocom-gupo.com.
