Long ago, while Europe remained in the Dark Ages, horticultural
techniques flourished in the Far East. In China, homes, palaces
and temples had enclosed gardens with trees, bridges, pavilions
and artificial landscapes and lakes.
Chinese gardens were planned like Chinese landscape scroll paintings,
with a succession of views, or garden areas, for different experiences
or moods. They were not overtly symmetrical like Western and Near
Eastern gardens, but planned to look more natural, and included
rocks as important features. Many lovely gardens were created
in ancient Suzhou. Chinese also created a special miniature type
of garden called penjing, the forerunner of Japanese bonsai gardens.
From there, we all can say that the horticulture and landscape
gardening market in China has been booming for a very long time.
