Ernie Glabau of Entwood Bonsai


Bonsai incorporates the use of miniature trees that are grown in containers.   It is a Japanese art form that has been in existence for over a thousand years.  Ernie Glabau of Burnham, Maine, has been growing bonsai plants since 1986, and is considered to be an expert in the field.


Bonsai has a special place in the gardening world.  The plants are not grown for food or for medicinal purposes.  The cultivation of bonsai involves a commitment that is long-term, as trees need to be repotted every one to two years before reaching ten years of growth. They also need to receive pruning and pinching attention. Learn more at
