We all think we know what a bonsai tree is. Translated literally, the word means no more than "cultivation in a tray". That, of course, is the least of it. The real point is to distil in miniature the essence of nature. Niwaki is a much less familiar term, but as Jake Hobson explains in an engrossing new book, Niwaki: Pruning, Training and Shaping Trees the Japanese Way, it has the same aim. The difference is one of scale. A niwaki is a garden tree, growing with its roots in the ground rather than in a tray. From now until the new year, teams of specialist pruners and clippers will be moving through Japanese gardens, enhancing the poise of junipers and maples, setting guy ropes to improve the angle of an azalea branch and, in the case of pines, stripping off all the old brown needles so that only the freshest, greenest foliage is left on the tree.
